Harney & Sons Japanese Sencha Loose Tea 4 oz
Harney & Sons call this tea Japanese Sencha because not all Sencha on the market is from Japan. It is a very fine Sencha from the central Shizuoka province, and can be found in many homes in Tokyo. It is a pleasant and approachable green tea – a fine choice for everyday. As a mid-season Sencha, this green tea has good levels of amino acids and more body than most green teas. Kosher certified.
The Kaburagi family has sold to Americans for over 110 years. They are well known in Tokyo and throughout Japan as a pre-eminent supplier of tea. They supply this pleasant Sencha from central Shizuoka. To keep the price somewhat reasonable, we choose teas from the middle of the season. John Harney drank this tea everyday for over 10 years. He valued the pleasant flavor and the antioxidants.
