Blended Sencha Premium (80g/2.82oz)

This item is the limited edition of 600 packages only available this winter season.

To create our delicious new Blended Sencha Premium, we blended together the tea leaves of Sencha and Gyokuro. Blended Sencha Premium is sweeter than basic Sencha, characteristic of Gyokuro. But, it has a more refreshing aroma than Gyokuro, characteristic of Sencha. When brewed, this tea is a noble shade of green like Gyokuro. (For more information concerning Blended Sencha, please read 'What is Blended Sencha' page by clicking here.)

There are some cardinal rules in blending tea leaves in order to influence the blended flavor. For example, it does not work well to blend tea leaves grown in full sunlight and tea leaves grown in shade. So, we blended Sencha grown in shade for 5 to 7 days before harvest with Gyokuro. In order to create the refreshing aroma of Sencha, these tea leaves are grown in shade for 5 to 7 days, whereas Gyokuro is grown in shade for 20 to 30 days.

This tea is a special blend of four breeds of green tea: Kanayamidori, Sayamakaori, Yabukita, and Okumidori. Kanayamidori and Sayamakaori are remarkable for their deep sweet and mellow taste. Yabukita has an excellent refreshing aroma.

If you would like Sencha with an especially mellow taste, you should try Blended Sencha Premium. We are certain you will enjoy it!

Note

There are two ways to brew Blended Sencha. We recommend you brew Blended Sencha in the same way as regular Sencha, to enjoy both the refreshing aroma of Sencha and the smooth, mellow flavor of Gyokuro. Another way to enjoy Blended Sencha is to brew longer for even more of a soft and mellow taste. In this case, we recommend you brew the tea using water of a slightly lower temperature for a little longer time.

1. Brewing process (for 2 cups)
- Tea leaves: 1 1/2 tablespoons (7 - 8g)
- Water temperature: 176F (80C)
- Amount of water: 7.03fl oz (200mL)
- Waiting time: 1 min.

2. Brewing more of a soft and mellow taste
For a more soft and mellow taste, we recommend you brew Blended Sencha using water of a slightly lower temperature 158F (70C) for 1 1/2 minutes.
