Balancing sweetness with bitterness, the Sencha of the Earth or 大地の煎茶, was named because it comes from zairai tea plants over 30 years old.
"Zairai" refers to plants grown from seeds taken from plants in existence before the recognition of specific cultivars. The name literally means "coming from existing (plants)"
The strength of these plants is simply amazing, and we can feel the power of the earth as we drink it. Grown on northwest facing slopes near the Wazuka River.
