Our Review
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 has drunk this tea everyday for over 10 years. He values the pleasant flavor and the antioxidants.
Dry Leaves The leaves from this tea are a medium lime green color. Since this is a traditional sencha (futsumushi) the leaves are more identifiable than in the deep steamed (fukamushi).
Liquor The liquor is a medium green, not as intense as the Ichiban. The green is a truer green than the Bancha, which tends more towards yellow.
Aroma Our Japanese Sencha has pleasant spinachy notes, with slight roast flavors that are similar to toasted bread.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body As a mid-season Sencha, this green tea has good levels of amino acids and more body than most green teas.
Flavors This is a very pleasant green tea. The mild vegetal flavors with light accents of citrus and toast make this a tea that can handle all your moods - every day.
Brewing Time 1 to 2 minutes
Brewing Temperature 160° F

Japanese Sencha

We call this Japanese Sencha because not all Sencha sold is from Japan. This is a nice blend of teas from the central Shizuoka province, and it is a very pleasant everyday tea. In fact our Founder, John Harney, starts everyday with this green tea.

Great tea! Great experience!
Average Review:

I love the silken sachet! It makes one feel regal when sipping it. I own dresses not made as well as that sachet, so I felt guilty getting it wet. Great tea!

My everyday go-to
Average Review:

One of the first Japanese green teas I tried. I drink this at least twice daily. By far the best green tea I've tried for the price.

Amazing
Average Review:

I tried this tea at a restaurant for breakfast and was delighted by it. It has a gorgeous color as well (Albeit different from color said above, it's quite a bit greener than most) And a pleasant vegetal flavor that isn't overwhelming. Most green teas that I've tried have a sort of bitterness that I couldn't find in this one. 5 stars, great tea.
