Sencha Sofu | Green Tea
Available online only in 2 oz. quantities.
High class tea meant to impress. Uniquely and literally floral in both cup and aroma, satin in texture, and refined by a slight astringency. The cup is powerful and expansive without being heavy. The best sencha we’ve found in 2021.
Produced in March 2021 from Tokunoshima, Japan. The Sofu cultivar was recognized in 2005 and originally comes from Shizuoka. “So” = “greenness of grass”, “fu” = “wind”. Tokunoshima is a remote island far off the southern tip of mainland Kagoshima. Its sunny, tropical climate is perfect for growing tea.
