Stone Temple Tea - Japanese Sencha Grade A 50g

Regular price $15.00 Sale

Japanese Sencha Grade A

This is undoubtedly the finest Japanese Sencha we have tasted to date. A prime example of what makes first flush sencha so sought after: a fine delicate vegetal aroma and taste, followed by an almond finish. Sweet and delicate yet complex vegetal, oceanic and satisfying umami flavour.

This organic Asamushi Sencha known in Japanese as “Asamushi-cha”. It is lightly steamed green tea, much shorter than typical sencha. Different levels of steaming are different “mushi”s. Lighter steaming (30 seconds) will result in a lighter, cleaner, more delicate, more astringent flavor, as well as a lighter color.

Do not use water over 75C or the flavor profile will be vanished.
