Shizuoka, located in the center of Japan, is an ideal tea growing region with
an average annual temperature of 60°F (15°C). With the exception of the
northern mountainous region, the prefecture has a mild maritime climate and
snow is rare on the plains. Teas from the prefecture will vary in taste based
upon the season of the year, elevation, and method of steaming the leaves. The
Art of Sencha, also referred to as ‘The Art of Steeped Tea,’ was introduced
into Japan in the second half of the seventeenth century. Most of the people
responsible for this were refugees, monks, and intellectuals from China, who
fled their country after the fall of the Ming dynasty in 1644. Tea scholars
have stated that Sencha, as a tradition of drinking tea, has contributed
highly to the development of the aesthetic sensibilities of the Japanese,
similar to ‘Chanoyu’ or the ‘Powdered Tea Ceremony.’
Our organic sencha tea makes a jade-colored brew with a bright, grassy, and oceanic aroma, and a smooth, mildly sweet taste
