Description: If you close your eyes and imagine walking through a Japanese cherry blossom orchard in springtime, that's exactly the taste sensation this tea brings. Hunan Province produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavour noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body. In Hunan the tea starts growing about March 15th, and between then and the end of April the quality is very good. Our policy is that we only buy our China tea requirements from tea grown between March 15 and April 15 and we promise you will taste our quality and dedication to better tea when you compare our tea with similarly graded teas.
Sencha is commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies marking events of personal importance. In this type of ceremony, it is the ritual that is of paramount importance as the individual is being acknowledged. This tea is also wonderful in the summer over ice.
Liza likes this tea plain. Adam adds a few drops of agave syrup. For iced drinks either cold brew overnight or brew as for hot but use more tea leaves to make a more intense flavour.
