Note: Packages for most tea & food products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions, click here to see info and photos). If you need the original Japanese package, please leave a note in the order comments.

The Tarui Family's Organic Sencha Chouseiden, meaning "long-life", utilizes Shizu 7132, a rare cultivar that provides a full-bodied, rich flavor balanced with sweetness. Only bud and first two leaves used.
