An extremely good tea with a deep, emerald leaf, bright liquor and a full bodied, grassy cup that is lightly touched with round notes of butter and honey. While in Japan, many teas are machine plucked, this tea comes from Hunan, China where it is plucked the old fashioned way. By hand! Each leaf is carefully selected for colour and size to make sure that there is an even grading. Akita Super Sencha is a superb tea, worthy of its Japanese heritage.
