Sencha is the traditional steamed green tea of Japan. Steaming preserves tea's fresh character and vivid green color by quickly halting natural tea oxidation. Sencha is finished with a light roast to develop a light pine aroma. Sencha's bright green infusion has a refreshing energy with a balance of juicy-sweet flavor, deep umami and a crisp, refreshing finish.

Tasting Notes: Premium Japanese green tea with a rich mouthfeel and long-lasting fresh flavor

For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Tokoname teapot.

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

I drink Matcha and Sencha Daily for years. I must say that this Sencha is surprisingly delicious. Fantastic nose, dark green shiny leaves. If brewed properly, little to no bitterness, strong umami, green and fresh tasting. Highly recommended
