Sencha is one of Japan’s most popular and beloved teas. Steamed green tea from Japan is harvested in the early spring (the first flush). This high grade Sencha Premier, has a delicate flavor profile.
A clean cup with notes of freshly steamed edamame. Refreshing, sweet, and much more delicate than most Senchas. If you’re new to Sencha (and the vibrant teas of Japan in general), this would be a great place to start.
Green Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 165° for 2 minutes.
Sencha represents eighty percent of all green tea production in Japan, it is from Sencha that nearly all other Japanese green teas are made, be it shade grown Gyokuro, roasted Hojicha, or ground Matcha. Unlike Chinese green teas, ryokucha are steamed rather than pan-fired to stop oxidization, which results in greener teas and more vegetal flavors.
