Yame Japanese Sencha is a gorgeous green color with super fine silky leaves. It has an invigorating vegetal flavor. High in antioxidants and low caffeine make this tea a keeper. Yame is in the Fukuoka Prefecture on the Island of Kyûshû. It remains a very small tea-producing area in comparison to Shizuoka, Kagoshima, or even Mie and Miyazaki. In Yame, tea is grown only in the limited area of Yame City and Yame District.
Sencha tea accounts for over 70% of all the tea that is manufactured in Japan. Selecting a great sencha is daunting. We carefully selected this sencha. It is Japan and EU certified organic. *
