Harney and Sons Japanese Sencha, Green - 20 Sachets per Box
We call this Japanese Sencha because not all Sencha sold is from Japan. This is a nice blend of teas from the central Shizuoka province, and it is a very pleasant everyday tea. In fact our Founder, John Harney, starts everyday with this green tea.
Dry Leaves: The leaves from this tea are medium lime green color. Since this traditional sencha (futsumushi) the leaves are more identifiable than the deep steamed kind (fukamushi).
Liquor: The liquor is a medium green, not as intense as the Ichiban. The green is a truer green than the Bancha that tends towards yellow.
Aroma: Our Japanese Sencha has pleasant spinachy notes, with slight roast flavors that are similar to toasted bread.
Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
Body: As a mid-season Sencha, this green tea has good levels of amino acids and more body than most green teas.
Flavors: This is a very pleasant green tea. The mild vegetal flavors with light accents of citrus and toast make this a tea that can handle all your moods - every day.
