Japanese Sencha

Rated 4.6 out of 5

Japan, Kagoshima Kirishima

The best senchas in Japan hail from the mountains of Kirishima in Kagoshima. Kagoshima is surrounded by volcanic landscapes and ocean, a beautiful and effective combination for tea cultivation. The region is covered in a layer of volcanic ash from the eruption of Mount Sakurajima, which left the soil nutrient-rich and fertile. The endless sunshine and mild climate, along with the volcanic soil, combine to create the perfect conditions for sencha. Our sencha is made by Yutakamidori cultivar and the tea is processed and grown in a very particular way to ensure quality and avoid oxidization. Each manufacturer then applies their own drying methods to impart a unique flavor and aroma to the tea.
