Otsukimi (お月見) literally means 'moon viewing' and is closely associated with Japanese festivals celebrating the moon in Autumn. It is at this time of the year when the moon appears brightest, and Japanese eat certain dishes such as tsukimi dango (round, white dumplings), edamame (soybeans), Japanese chestnuts, etc.
Our Otsukimi Sencha or Sencha of the Autumn Moon was named after this Japanese tradition not only because we harvest it in late September / early October when the festivals occur, but also because the tea leaves and stems produce a bright yellow-green sencha with a strong astringent flavor.
Resteep up to 4 times or until flavor becomes too diluted.
