Kosyun Kitada Sencha
Sencha is produced by steaming the leaves before drying, and then firing them afterwards, in contrast to teas which are pan-fired before drying. The characters for sencha (煎茶) literally translate as "pan-fired tea", which can be confusing because the term "pan-fired" usually refers to green teas (including many Chinese varieties) which are pan-fired before drying, at the stage at which sencha is steamed. Our Kosyun Sencha is from Japan’s Maruyasu Provence and it is sure to please anyone who enjoys a good sencha.

A second steeping still contains a lot of flavor, so save your leaves and rebrew if desired.
