Akita Super Sencha
Akita Super Sencha is a a premium tea from China, made with Japanese style and standards. Tea was introduced to Japan by the Chinese many hundreds of years ago. This hand plucked tea uses only the finest leafs from camellia sinensis. Each leaf is examined for it’s colour, breadth and length to get an even grading.
It has a character that personifies “mouth-feel.” Depending on how it is brewed it should have a greenish golden colour. I recommend steeping it for 1 minute to bring out the vegetative taste. You can get two or three steeps out of each cup of tea.
I like to drink this tea in the afternoon or in the evening after dinner. One of my favourite things to do is put on some music, open a good book and enjoy green tea out of one of my favourite cups. As it gets colder this winter, I am sure I will be doing more of that. I recommend fantasy and acoustic music, but that is just my preference.
