Tokkyū Yabukita Asamushi Sencha | 特級浅蒸し煎茶やぶきた
This competition grade sencha is what we consider to be a "special occasion" tea.
The leaves have been grown in a specially designated area and then sorted with extra care to ensure its exceptional quality and taste.
It's lightly-steamed leaves produce a clear coloured tea with a refreshing aroma. It is rich and flavourful but not overpowering. It features a subtle sweetness--almost fruity flavour--that makes for an excellent treat any time of the day.
Did you know? Tokkyū (特級) means premium.
