The delightfully rich aroma & distinctive maritime flavour are dominant characteristics of this tea.
Due to the low caffeine content this tea is great for drinking just before bedtime.
Harvested from the second flush of sencha between summer and autumn.
This tea is widely drunk in Japan as a daily tea and is now popular around the world.
