Additional Info

It should come as no surprise that Japan's most influential Samurai, Saigo Takamori (1828-1877) was born in Kagoshima prefecture, home of Japan Sencha Kakagawa. Why should that not be surprising?Because, both are assertive, legendary and ''true'. We'll explain. According to lore, Saigo Takamori was dubbed Japan's last true Samurai. Living only until his 49th year, the famous warrior, fought social oppression, exile and many battles, winning the hearts of all who followed him. Likewise, Japan Sencha Kakagawa is thought by many in the tea world to be one of the truest expressions of Japanese tea, also highly capable of winning the hearts of all who drink it.
