Produced in the province of Kyushu, Sencha Ariake is the mildest of the great Sencha teas.
Very invigorating and flowery, it is very pleasing in the morning.
Tea and food pairings:
Sencha Ariake pairs extremely well with grilled fish such as salmon, bass, sea bream, or red mullet and with seafood such as shrimps, scallops or clams.
For dessert lovers, Sencha Ariake is delicious with berries mousse or sorbet.
Throughout the year, our experts travel in the tea plantations looking for the best pluckings and new, rare, delicious teas.
The fact that we travel so extensively, that we taste and buy on location has many advantages and allows us to find rare crops by looking outside the traditional supplier circuit, to taste and to share with you the harvests of small plantations, which are often hidden away.
Visiting tea estates regularly and thereby establishing long-lasting relations with our suppliers allows us to guarantee regular quality control of the teas we buy, and to continue our mission: to bring you the best quality teas and to share our travels and experience with you, while concerning ourselves with environmental issues, working conditions on the estates and the fair trade practices to which we adhere.
Light, Delicate & Delicious! I received Sencha Ariake as a sample in my last order. It's not grassy. If you prefer a mild tasting green tea, this a great choice. It's light, delicate and delicious!
