The taste profile is a simple, easy-to-drink sencha——the deep taste of nature. This sencha comes from the first tea harvest which spans from early to mid-May, including the native species (Zairai) which is the beginning of Japanese tea. Setoya is the name given to the area in Fujieda City, Shizuoka Prefecture, where many of this tea vendor's fields are located. Please enjoy the unique taste and sweetness of mountain grown tea.
