The Nishi family's teas are celebrated throughout Japan for their exquisite quality and dedication to organic cultivation techniques and masterful cultivar selection. This is Nishi's premier asamushi style sencha with a bright, lively character that is only found in the first flush. The "first flush" refers to the first harvests of the spring season when new tea buds emerge and tea plants awake from winter dormancy. At this time, the bushes sprout up with great vigor and yield the richest, most balanced teas. Vivid and juicy, Nishi First Flush Sencha presents a dewy umami flavor and smooth mouthfeel.
