From Harney & Sons

Before the main tea season gets into full gear, master tea makers prepare for the tea contests later in the year. They gather the best young tea leaves by hand, so that they retain the great qualities of amino acids and the highest amount EGCG antioxidants. These are carefully processed and then stored until the contest in September. This one did very well and that is why it is called Master’s Mark. It is an honor to offer this special sencha.

This tea is not for novice brewers. It’s pretty difficult to brew correctly. However, a correctly brewed cup is sublime. This tea is handpicked, so the leaves are beautifully uniform and whole. A correctly brewed tea should have a delicate neon green-yellow hue. I suggest upper 160s’F for 45 seconds with a slow pour—so about 1 minute with a normally fast pour. Once you get it perfectly, you should taste a perfectly balanced cup that is marked by silkiness. That’s what makes this superior to Matsuda’s Sencha. Lots of lemony spinach flavors, seaweed, etc. But it’s calm and refined. Not overly bracing.
