Sencha Fukujyu Cha is harvested in the famous tea growing region of Shizuoka Prefecture, adjacent to the mountainous Fujiyama. Our blenders typically select Senchas from the shincha ("new tea") in late May. Top quality Senchas are harvested as young tender shoots every four or five days early in the season, and steamed for 20 seconds to denature the leaf enzymes and prevent fermentation.

When I first tasted this tea, I thought "I may never be able to leave this hotel again. This tea is just so absolutely delicious I cannot imagine going home to the tea I have at home." Thankfully, the front desk staff assured me I would be able to purchase the tea from TeaLeaves which is exactly what I did. I know that due to FDA regulations, the manufacturer is forbidden from extolling the incredible health benefits their product offers but let me assure you TeaLeaves can do much more than you imagine. Foods taste more divine. My marriage is in a much stronger place. My children call me more. I cannot say with certainty that my purchase of TeaLeaves led to such a drastic improvement in my life but I cannot not say that either.
I drink a lot of tea. A lot (especially as I quit drinking coffee) and having spent much time in Japan, I can attest that this tea is as good as it gets. I highly recommend it. I drink a whole pot throughout the day and never feel caffeine jitters and, in fact, can still take a nap without any issues. It’s a gentle, nuanced tea that I drink everyday now. Highly recommended.
We have been avid Tealeaves Sencha drinkers since Dec 2013. From the delicate leaves to the light sweetness and soft palate taste without any harsh aftertaste, this tea is very special. The same quality has been maintained thru the years. The excellent packaging keeps it fresh, even in the larger 200 cup tin. Thank You! (And Stay Safe)
