In Japan, estates harvest green teas at exact times to produce a range of tastes and flavor balances. Sencha Hanase, a very popular steamed green tea in Japan, is plucked in mid spring for a medium astringency and light taste. The intensely deep green leaves resemble pine needles and produce a fresh flavor with hints of newly mown grass and sea mists.
