Homare is one of the Sugimoto family’s most premium teas, made entirely from the best of the best spring harvest Yabukita leaves grown in southwestern Shizuoka. "Homare" means "Pride" and is our highest grade sencha. This unique fukamushi style sencha is reminiscent of green beans and asparagus, rich and brothy with a striking spring sweetness. Given our signature high heat final roast, this tea leaves a rich lingering finish.
Recommended Brewing: As this is a premium sencha, we recommend using a small Japanese kyusu and steeping at a lower temperature than is normal for most other senchas. Use 3g per 4 oz of water and brew at 170F for 30s for the 1st steeping. Can be steeped multiple times.
