How It Tastes

A lively, fresh cup with notes of newly cut grass. Japan's green teas are known for their vegetal flavors and sea air aromas, due largely to the initial steaming of the leaves, a practice that heightens the fresh, raw leaf qualities of the tea. Steaming also brightens the cup-the best quality Sencha teas are lime-green when brewed. Look for a brothy taste rich in umami.


Sencha is the dominant type of tea produced in Japan, notable for its fresh steamed process and slick, pine needle leaf shape. Qualities vary widely according to how early in the year the leaf is plucked, the degree to which it is steamed, and the region. Our Sencha comes from the famous Shizuoka area and employs a moderate 'Chumushi' steaming for balanced, vibrant color and umami taste.
