Keiko Japanese Organic Green Tea    

Keiko Japanese Organic Green Tea
Unlike black tea, green tea is not fermented. Normally, the enzymes contained in freshly plucked tea leaves cause fermentation to automatically set in: to avoid this, green tea leaves are briefly dried with heat immediately after plucking.

Premium organic japanese tea from Kagoshima

Keiko green tea is shade-grown under special nets, called Kabuse. The nets let just half of the sun's rays through. Growing semi-shaded comes close to the natural light conditions of the wild tea bush. The shaded tea develops more active substances and a distinct, fresh, highly aromatic scent.
From the first and second harvest, more delicate than the usual late harvest Banchas. It is low in caffeine, suitable for drinking later in the day. Fresh green color and harmonious aroma.
