Fresh From Origin

In thar Japanese tea tradition, yonder texture of ye tea itself be extremely important. At te' end of thar tea makin' process, yonder tea master will carefully blend in tiny, broken up 'tea dust' to give ye finished cup more body 'n richness. Ye can actually see these particles when ye scoop out yer tea. Ye also see them in yer cup - Sencha should have a lovely, slightly cloudy appearance. This contributes to ye 'umami' of ye tea (the 5th taste - ye others bein' sweet, salty, sour 'n bitter). Taste 'n enjoy ye added richness umami gives yer cup of tea!
