Senchas are prized in Japan. They are steam dried to halt oxidation, giving rise to a rich palate of freshly cut grass and sea notes. This Sencha grown on Mt. Fuji in the Shizuoka district is picked earlier in the season than Banchas. Mt. Fuji offers rich, fertile soil that provides optimal growing conditions for tea in the region, and these spring pluckings are the ultimate example of Japanese green tea.
There are several ways to enjoy drinking Japanese green teas. Apart from the usual leaves in hot water technique, an alternative method is to apply an ice-cube on top of a teaspoon of leaves (we fine it works best in a small jam jar). Once the ice has melted, press the water out of the leaves using a spoon and enjoy a super-concentrated "tea shot". Be warned though: it is very green and very astringent to the point of mouth puckering.
We strongly urge you not to use boiling water with this tea. Instead, let the water cool for several minutes. This will ensure that the leaves are not burned.
