Light Steamed Sencha Yabukita
Japanese Green Tea, Loose Leaf
When brewed the first time Light Steamed Sencha Yabukita produces a very mild green tea taste that has body, not a trace of astringency and a most pleasant sweet aftertaste that lingers. Unlike most other Japanese green teas the flavor remains the same as the liquid cools.
The second steeping offers a neutral but very satisfying flavor. The Yabukita cultivar is grown and harvested more than any other to produce Kagoshima green tea. Light Steamed Sencha Yabukita is a very enjoyable tea and an exceptional value.
