The perfect expression of summer, Sencha Taidana is a round, medium bodied aracha style sencha with subtle umami taste and notes of dried fruit. Two weeks of shading prior to harvest create a smooth pleasant tea. Taidana is excellent cold brewed in the fridge for when you want a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up.
