Under the Willow
Bright green Japanese sencha tea
Tastes Like: sweet alfalfa, almond, mâche
Feels Like: the gentle hum of cicadas in the afternoon
We just received a new crop of this wonderful single-origin Japanese green tea. This is a sencha Americans will love. This one is sweet and delicate, unlike many senchas. It has a marvelous bright green color. With each sip, you feel a rejuvenating, cooling sensation. As an iced tea, it is even sweeter, milder and more refreshing. Grown in Chiran, Japan, this first flush tea was grown near the Sakurajima volcano in mild, fertile soil. Villages have been growing tea in this area since around 1872.
