Crafting Style - Sencha is the traditional steamed green tea of Japan. Steaming preserves tea's fresh character and vivid green color by quickly halting natural tea oxidation. Sencha is finished with a light roast to develop a light pine aroma. Sencha's bright green infusion has a refreshing energy with a balance of juicy-sweet flavor, deep umami and a crisp, refreshing finish.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I buy this because it is organic and from Japan. After many years of drinking Longjing Tea and Dragon Well Tea from the mountains of Zhejiang Province in China, I became concerned about the rising levels of pollution in the area. Although this Rishi tea will never have the unique and delicate flavor of Longjing, it is still perfect in its own way. Very clean, very crisp, very nice.
