Organic Sencha Hiraki Asamushi
$4.75 – $29.25 (from $0.52/cup)
This delicious Sencha has a more pronounced roasted aroma and is not as sweet as our Isagawa Sencha. It is a well-balanced flavor with a more complex brothy umami quality. This tea pairs well with food and it is great for warming up on a cool autumn night.
This high-grade first flush Sencha has a balanced richness. Its umami taste is a result of amino acids in the leaf that survive the steaming but not other production methods. This organic tea is grown in Shizuoka Prefecture about 130 km southwest of Mt. Fuji. The farm has produced organic teas for over 30 years.
