The Tea Crane's Description

This tea is a high-quality sencha produced on organic farms, and is therefore both safe and unsullied: free of anything known to be unhealthy, and uncontaminated as to flavor. Consequently, it tastes as sencha really should.

Although this variety has not in fact been grown under any semi-opaque, light-reductive, and heat-trapping covers, its flavor comprises that faint hint of humid soil which characterizes teas cultivated by that method. Not only will it reveal the true charm of sencha: sipping it will also afford a moment of utter peace.

Note: Since it is repacked by Yunomi, it loses its organic certification.
