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.
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. Despite being an affordable blended sencha, a portion of the harvest is shaded for one week prior to harvest, lending to a mild sweetness and pleasant bitterness.

Third or fourth infusions require longer times of 90+ seconds. Please remember, these are guidelines to get you started and you may find your preference is to adjust them.
