This Organic Nishi First Flush Sencha presents a dewy umami flavor and smooth mouthfeel. The Nishi family's teas are celebrated throughout Japan for their exquisite quality and dedication to organic cultivation techniques and masterful cultivar selection. The "first flush" refers to the first harvests of the spring season when new tea buds emerge and tea plants awake from winter dormancy. At this time, the bushes sprout up with great vigor and yield the richest, most balanced teas.
Preparation: Add 1.5 Tbsp of Sencha to 12 oz of water at 160 degrees for 1.5 minutes.
We purchase this tea from Rishi Tea & Botanicals, a company that supports organic, sustainable agriculture and direct trade.
