Murchie’s Sencha Supreme is from the Shizuoka region in Japan. It is grown in the sun and plucked mid-spring. Special tasting notes: fresh, herbaceous, “green” taste. Beautifully balanced, with a slight edge that marks freshness, and a long, lingering finish.
Along with the springtime blossoming of cherry trees, the first harvest of Sencha – or ichibancha, literally “first-picked tea” – is a highly celebrated event in Japan.
Green teas are delicate; they brew best at low temperature for short periods of time. Several infusions possible.
