Premium Sencha (leaf 50g) Kagoshima (Silver Medal Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards 2019)

Regular price $21.00

This premium sencha is a blend of tea leaves only from varieties growing in our supplier’s farm. Leaves are carefully selected based on colours, flavour and aroma. This sencha is prepared by only the softest parts of leaves. It is well balanced in sweetness, astringency, bitterness and umami.

For one serving: Two and half teaspoons of tea leaves (5g) and warm water (60ml)

How to brew: Choose thin small teacups and a teapot.

  1. Place tea leaves in the teapot.
  2. Pour boiling water into teacups to measure the amount of water and to reduce the temperature. This is the key for preparing nice green tea.
  3. Leave them about two minutes to cool down to 60°C. Shift the cooled water to the teapot; close a lid to steam 60 seconds.
  4. Pour little by little between teacups and out to the last drop.

From the second serving, brew tea in slightly warmer water and shorter period.

You can enjoy this tea for the third serving without losing its flavour and taste.

About tea farmer:

Our supplier in Kagoshima has been producing high quality of Japanese green tea since 1894. The family succeeded their craftsmanship from generation to generation. They carry out everything by themselves from cultivating tea plants to finish products.

Their tea field is located in the foothills of Mount Kirishima. The fluctuation of temperature is significant so the area often has dense fog in the morning. This helps to produce high quality of tea.
