Sencha Miyo no hikari - Sencha of Excellence Sencha Miyo no hikari / Tato Envelope 20g

Distinguished by the Emperor's cup, this green tea of supreme quality is the pride of the Nakayama cooperative in Sayo-Nakayama, in the Kakegawa region of Shizuoka prefecture.

Miyo no hikari, a green tea comprised of tender tea buds, is highly prized for its rarity. Only the first two shoots are plucked, which have a very special sweet flavor, as well as the main shoot, which comes in early spring. Harvesting is done by hand, whereafter, the tea leaves are gently steamed. Thanks to the organic cultivation methods, the tea acquires an even sweeter and deeper taste. Steaming must be done slowly in order to find the right balance between sweetness and astringency.
