PROCESSING NOTES—First flush, asamushi-style sencha (lightly steamed), picked early in the spring. Very elegant, succulent, and clean — a classic Japanese green tea that is pure joy. L-theanine, that naturally occurring mood booster your brain releases in yoga class, also occurs in the best Japanese green teas, which is what makes this tea taste and feel so good.
Packed at the farm in small, 50 gram (2 ounce) bags. Be mindful when brewing this to use lower temperature water, to prevent scalding the leaves.
INGREDIENTS—Organic Japanese green tea
