2021 Spring Harvest Japanese Sencha Kukicha Green Tea
This is a Japanese Green Tea known as Sencha Karigane/ Kukicha— or stem tea. Japanese green teas differ from Chinese green teas such that they are steamed, as opposed to pan roasted. This results in preserving more chlorophyll, antioxidants, and generally increased caffeine as well. The process also creates an invigorating brew with a naturally sweet finish, yet balanced body, with umami and notes leaning toward grass & or seaweed.
