Description

Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose Green Tea

Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose is a blend of high quality green tea with sweet cherry flavorings & subtle rose hints which give the tea a wonderful exotic character. One of our first teas, it has been a customer favorite and one of our personal favorites.

Hunan Province produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavor noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body. In Hunan the tea starts growing about March 15th, and between then and the end of April the quality is very good. Once you pass April, the quality plummets on account of the volume of leaf taken in and the bushes growing too quickly. This is why the tea bought from China tea is from tea grown between March 15 and April 15. This requirement comes through when you compare the taste of our tea with similarly graded teas. Sencha is commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies marking events of personal importance. In this type of ceremony it is the ritual that is of paramount importance as the individual is being acknowledged. Flavored tea is a relatively new phenomena and combining flavors with roses and Japanese style green tea is almost considered ‘Avant Garde’ by our Japanese friends.

Kyoto is the cultural center of Japan. Several centuries ago Kyoto was the religious capital of Japan. The relics of this past are evident throughout the city. Beside the multitude of temples that dot the city, and the wonderful parks where religious scholars once walked, the city has more the 1000 Torjii – those typical gate/arch structures that one associates with Japan. The Torjii are large with the top shaped like a curved samurai sword (respect) and the two pillars are solid and stately (well-being). During the springtime this area of Japan is ablaze with the new season cherry blossoms and the air is filled with sweet aroma. The rose petals in this blend are intended to simulate these delicate cherry blossoms. The flavor is reminiscent of the beautiful smells that waft on the springtime breezes. It is little wonder that this ancient city has a very high ratio of tearooms and this tea was created to honor this wonderful time of the year, which is very important in Japan.

Please try our Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose and experience the beauty of both delicate roses and cherries in a tea cup.
