Description: Sencha Superior is an asamushi sencha made from the predominant Yabukita cultivar in Japan, yielding what many define as the classical character of lively fresh flavor that represents the original Japanese sencha taste profile. Developed in the 18th century, the process of making sencha has evolved into the art and science of preserving fresh green flavor. The light asamushi style steaming preserves this tea's varietal character and yields a clear, golden-green infusion. Fresh and savory, with pleasant grassy notes and a crisp finish.

Tasting Notes: Fresh, grassy high notes with a smooth body, savory flavor and crisp finish.

Ingredients: Organic green tea

Origin: Miyazaki, Japan

Steeping Recommendations

Water Temperature: 180°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 3 minutes

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
