Sencha Tano is a deep steamed fukamushi sencha, as seen by the fragmented leaf. Expert blending of five cultivars from the first and second harvest batches, grown at three unique tea gardens in Miyazaki prefecture, has produced a sencha well suited to casual tea sessions with friends or for those who favour a milder umami taste. Sencha Tano is the finest quality, affordable sencha we've come across so far.
Medium emerald, fractured leaves, with dry notes of raspberry, puffed rice and basil brew an opaque green liquor with tastes of chard, green beans and spinach. A portion of the harvest is shaded for one week prior to harvest, lending to a mild sweetness and pleasant bitterness.
The highest quality is a core value of Igeta Seicha and the reason they oversee every aspect of tea production, from the cultivating healthy soil to final packaging of the finished tea. Multiple top Nihoncha Awards placings are evidence of this commitment to excellence.
