Young spring and early summer leaves come together to make Japan's most traditional loose leaf tea; sencha. Our sencha is steamed in the fukamushi, or "deep-steamed" style characteristic of southern Shizuoka, and then finished with a high roasting; the specialty of the Sugimoto family. The high heat finishing roast brings out a rich aroma and lingering umami finish that is consistent even after multiple steepings. Each bulk foil bag contains 100 large pyramid tea bags. One tea bag yields 1 quart of tea. Recommended for family, restaurant, and office use.
