This green tea comes from Shizuoka, near the slopes of Mount Fuji. The leaves are plucked mechanically during autumn and sorted by hand. Sencha means 'steamed'. It is a method of stopping the oxidization of green leaves. Very fine and fragile leaves produce a light olive green cup rich in vitamin C. It is mild and delicious with a subtle sweetness.
A lovely afternoon and evening tea.
