Tsuyuhikari refers to the tea varietal, which was registered in the year 2000. Our Tsuyuhikari is a Fukamushi (deep steamed) Sencha, made with the youngest leaves of the first flush harvest from the Makinohara region of Shizuoka. The color of the leaf is bright green and it has a refreshing aroma with a hint of Gyokuro-like “ Umami”.
About Sencha Variety
Sencha, the most commonly drunk green tea in Japan was first produced in Uji (the outskirts of Kyoto) in the 18thCentury and is now produced in many parts of the country. First flush tea, harvested from late April through mid-May, is considered the best of its kind. Sencha has the perfect balance of briskness and sweetness.
