Light-steamed green tea
The best of Japanese sencha green teas, this is made from Hashiri Shincha (走り新茶), the very first buds of spring.
Prepared since the previous fall, the young leaf buds are packed with nutrients stocked up by the plant over the long, cold winter. The result is the highest grade of tea leaf and an especially strong flavor. Handpicked from our best fields at the start of the shincha (first flush) season, the theanine amino acid content of the buds is at its peak, imparting in the tea a deep, sweet and savory flavor reminiscent of a light sea breeze.
