Uji Sencha Premium
This tea comes from Uji, on the outskirts of the old capital Kyoto, where Sencha was invented in 1738. Uji Sencha Premium is made using leaves, which are typically picked around the 10th day after the first flush harvest has begun. Because the bushes are shaded before harvesting, it retains a lot of Umami.
About Sencha Variety
Sencha, the most commonly drunk green tea in Japan was first produced in Uji (the outskirts of Kyoto) in the 18th Century 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.
