Morita-san's premium sencha takes the name Suiren, the Japanese name for the water lily. Translated literally to "sleeping lotus", Suiren flowers are related to the lotus flower, and is the flower that Claude Monet studied in his famous Water Lilies painting. The lotus is a symbol of enlightenment in Japanese and Chinese aesthetics because the plant rises from the darkness of the pond and blooms into the light.
