A harmonious blend of sweetness, bitterness, richness, astringency and fragrance-this is sencha. It's easy to understand why sencha is such a favorite beverage in Japan, not only for those seeking to quench a thirst, but also for those wanting to sip on something extra special.
In the morning or afternoon, before or after a meal, sencha is the perfect drink to revitalize your mind and refresh your spirit.
For seasoned sencha drinkers who prefer a well-balanced tea with slightly more bitterness and astringency than sweetness, Nichi-getsu is an excellent choice. If you find that you like the basic character of Nichigetsu, but want a tea that is even more bitter and astringent, then we recommend Unro. For a more neutrally-balanced sencha, try our Shoike-no-o.
