A delicious Sencha-style green tea. This steamed green tea produces a pale green liquor with a slight nuttiness, moderate astringency, and dry finish.  The flavor evokes thoughts of steamed greens. Pairs well with seafood or spicy ramen.

This tea, like many steamed green teas, is very sensitive to temperature and steep times. Start low and with shorter steeps to find the perfect brew for you.

This organically grown tea is grown over 6000 ft above sea level in the Andes. The tea garden itself is located near the Bitaco Regional Forest Reserve, a protected rainforest. The rich volcanic soil in combination with the consistent climate near the equator produces a delicate and delicious tea throughout the year.  Bitaco Tea was created by Agricola Himalaya Foundation to create educational programs for children, improve infrastructure, and increase access to technology.
