The hime midori is a late spring harvest premium sencha leaf from the award-winning Kurihara family (based in Yame, Fukuoka prefecture). They are one of Japan's best at creating a premium green tea called gyokuro. We are happy to share that tea farmer Akio Kurihara creates some of the best teas we have. This is a popular sencha that is perfect to send as a gift and a go-to sencha at home. The Kurihara family recommends steeping in hot water between 70-80 degrees for about a minute. The sweetness will spread even more and fill you with delicious delight. 

Please note that the "Shincha" packaging (white package with the characters for shincha; 新茶) is limited and will switch over to standard packaging when it runs out.
