Sencha Miyakonojo

$18.00

 Sencha Miyakonojo is the premier sencha produced by the multi-Nihoncha Award winning tea farm Igeta Seicha, located in Miyazaki prefecture, one of Japan's finest tea regions. 

 Produced from 100% Okumidori cultivar, the first harvest leaves undergo traditional asamushi, or light steaming, producing an exceptionally clear, vibrant green liquor.  Expert craftmanship produces long, emerald green needles that, once brewed, express the characteristic deep umami flavour of the Okumidori cultivar.  A period of shading prior to harvest softens the astringency while highlighting the sweetness.   This is truly a sencha to savour and enjoy with full attention.

 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.  

It was at their tea garden at Mt. Kuroyama, where the humidity, fog and abundant southern sun  create truly perfect conditions for tea, that they became the first tea company in Miyazaki Prefecture to earn JAS organic certification.
