This Sencha is certified organic and it is certainly from Japan and most importantly, it tastes like a good Sencha.

The leaves are medium green, and shorter in length than other Senchas. This tea comes from the same valley as Matsuda's Sencha, so the microclimate (or terroir) and the traditions make it possible to make good Sencha.

Organic teas are very important to some, however, sometimes it is hard to find these teas made in Japan. The tea makers often feel that they can not make good tea without the addition of Nitrogen. This element is found in every amino acid (even those in your body) and amino acids give Sencha their body or umami, also they add sweetness to the brew. However, this teamaker gets by with natural fertilizers. Yes, the tea is a bit weaker than other Senchas, but is still very nice.

 4 oz tins of loose leaf available by case only (6 tins per case).
