Kyoto Sencha Green
Oceanic, Green Vegetal, Toasted Nuts
Delicate, ethereal, fresh flavor from first flush Kyoto green tea blend with the rich, warm, more intense notes of summer harvest leaves creating a refreshing well-rounded cup.
This tea is grown in the southern portion of Japan’s Kyoto Prefecture. The region is regarded as the region that produces the highest quality green teas. The freshly picked tea is very briefly steamed to halt the oxidation process, which produces yellow and black teas. The leaves are then rolled into the cylinders which unfurl when steeped.
Kyoto Sencha Green is a combination of leaves harvested with the first flush and leaves harvested at the peak of summer. The first flush leaves contribute delicate, ethereal, fresh notes while the summer leaves feature the rich, warm, more intense notes.
Kyoto Prefecture - Japan
We recommend steeping three to four grams of tea (one to two tablespoons) per 8 to 10 oz cup. It is paramount that water is much cooler than boiling. We recommend starting with 175℉ water and a 1 minute steep. To increase the intensity of the cup use slightly hotter water ~180-185℉ and/or slightly more steep time ~1:15-1:30. To decrease the intensity, do the opposite and use ~165-170℉ water and 30-45 second parameters.
