Homare Sencha Reserve
The Tea Lab introduces Homare Sencha, one of our most premium teas, made entirely from the best of the best spring harvest Yabukita leaves grown in southwestern Shizuoka. "Homare" means "Pride" and is our highest grade sencha. This unique fukamushi style sencha is reminiscent of green beans and asparagus, rich and brothy with a striking spring sweetness. Given our signature high heat final roast, this tea leaves a rich lingering finish. Recommended Brewing: As this is a premium sencha, we recommend using a small Japanese kyusu and steeping at a lower temperature than is normal for most other senchas
Origins: Before the 17th century, Japanese tea drinkers strongly favored elaborate tea ceremonies for spiritual contemplation. Sencha drinking rose as an easier, more casual, and more spontaneous social practice.
