This premium quality Japanese green tea is made from the season's first tender, young leaves, hand-harvested at their peak of flavor. By a unique Japanese process, the freshly picked leaves are briefly steamed to capture their complex flavor and emerald green color, then rolled into curls and oven-dried. In Japan, Sencha is a prized tea served at high class restaurants and at home to make guests feel welcome and honored. Stimulating yet soothing, Sencha has long been used by Zen monks to promote mental clarity and calmness during prolonged meditations. Unlike Indian or Chinese green teas on the market, Mitoku Sencha is considered medicinal due to its high concentration of catechins.

Aromatic, jade-green tea leaves carefully mixed with gently toasted whole rice grains: sharp, bitter clarity and rich, warm sweetness. The perfect blend, worthy of the ancient tea-masters of traditional Japan. The perfect drink for elegant refreshment, at any time, for any occasion.
