Sencha Large Tea Bags

Origin:Shizuoka, Japan


Young spring and early summer leaves come together to make Japan's most traditional green tea; sencha. Our sencha is steamed in the fukamushi, or "deep-steamed" style characteristic of southern Shizuoka, and then finished with a high roasting; the specialty of the Sugimoto family. The high heat finishing roast brings out a rich aroma and lingering umami finish that is consistent even after multiple steepings. Each bulk foil bag contains 100 large pyramid tea bags. One tea bag yields 1 quart of tea. Recommended for family, restaurant, and office use.

Sencha Large Tea Bag

I was introduced to green tea during 1955-56 at age 15 while my family resided in Kichijoji. Since then, back in Hawaii, I almost exclusively enjoyed dark roast Kona coffee. Recently sipping on this coffee throughout the day became less appealing and I decided to switch to green tea as my primary beverage. I started with two tea bags in the Japanese ceramic tea pot Iʻm using but thought the tea too strong. After switching to a single Sugimoto tea bag in the one-quart pot I find the beverage enjoyable and sippable throughout each day. I was also delighted that although the tea strength weakens when the pot is refilled with hot water, I nonetheless enjoy the flavor through three potfuls on one tea bag some days. I am very glad I stumbled upon Sugimoto green tea!

Sencha tea bags

The Sencha tea is excellent. It is smooth and full flavored.

Couldn’t wait for the package to arrive!

I was introduced to Sugimoto teas when one of my ESL students from Japan gave me some as a gift. I am a long time green tea aficionado and can honestly say this is the best green tea I have ever had. This is my first time buying it myself from Sugimoto and I couldn’t wait for the package to arrive!
