Fresh and lively, with notes of newly cut grass and a hint of the sea
About this tea

Tea story

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 qualities of the tea. Steaming also brightens the cup – the best quality Senchas are lime-green when brewed. While more and more “Sencha” is actually China-grown tea made for the Japanese market, we believe only Japan’s distinctive varietals and expert leaf processing can produce the true flavor.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; let it cool for 2 minutes (180° F) before steeping tea for 3 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.

The Japanese cultivate and drink this tea for a reason, it is amazing. Your taste buds and palate will be more apt and able to taste from drinking Sencha. The umami experience is practically unbelievable, a cup or two of Sencha will really help your taste buds and palate be more apt and able to taste. Sencha is also perfect to make cold green tea.
