From the master
This tea is made from Tencha – a tea grown in the shade in very similar circumstances as Gyokuro. The leaves used are not rolled during processing. They are ground down to the fine powder from using two granite rollers. The powder is used widely in food and drinks, making green tea ice cream for example. This tea is used in the traditional Japanese tea serving ceremony. Can use a bamboo ‘chasen’ to whisk the tea.
