This Sencha is made with leaves from the first flush harvest of a bush called Sun Rouge. This cultivar was developed by a research division of a major paper manufacturer in southern Japan, and was registered in the registry of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forest and Fishery in 2009. Sun Rouge has a high content anthocyanins, the same compound responsible for the purple skin of eggplants and red wine grapes. Although the bush is difficult to grow, the master producer in Mie prefecture made a wonderful tasting Sencha using Sun Rouge bush. His garden only yields 10kg annually.
