Yamato Sencha Japanese Green Tea


This Japanese Sencha Green Tea is a very well manufactured, classical Green Tea. Yamato was the ancient name for the area currently known as the Nara district of Japan lying to the south of Osaka. The Sencha Leaf is traditional and typical of Japanese production. This Yamato Sencha is harvested in the Autumn Months as the leaves become more mature following the more rapid summer growth. Autumn Teas are valued for their stronger tastes and full rich aromas. The colour of this neatly made leaf is dark olive. Definitely a Sencha Tea for the connoisseur.
