Sencha Asatsuyu is a single cultivar green tea made from Shizuoka prefecture's asatsuyu cultivar, famous for naturally providing a gyokuro-like taste profile filled with umami richness. It has a mellow sweetness and is often utilised for making high-quality tea.

Of course, one can enjoy this tea hot but the Dobashien Tea Company also recommends to try it cold-steeped during the warmer seasons. When it is cold-steeped, one may be pleasantly surprised at how delicious this tea is, without much/any bitterness. If you do enjoy having a bit of bitterness in your tea, it is recommended to steep the tea with hot water and then to add ice to the tea. Please enjoy this tea in many ways! 

About Production

The most commonly drunk of all teas in Japan, sencha tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. After they are picked, the leaves are take immediately to to the factory for steaming, rolling, and drying.

In Japan, a high level of skill necessary to create fine sencha. Though the processing of the leaves is entirely mechanized, the machines utilized are built to imitate the handrolling process that turns leaves into fine sencha needles. So, our tea meisters study the handrolling process in order to gain a better understanding and control over the machines used to produce professional-level sencha tea leaves.

From there, our award-winning master blenders taste teas from different farms, filter out stems and dust, sort the leaves by size and gradation, and combine the leaves to create the perfect sencha.
