Sencha refers to a variety of steamed green teas. The best of which are from Japan. The varietal of tea bush, the cultivation region, the elevation, the harvest season and the method of steaming and drying the tealeaves are all defining factors to sencha's diverse range of flavors and aromas. While 70% of Japanese Sencha is made with the Yabukita tea bush varietal, Kagoshima's tea farmers have developed many new breeds of tea bush varietals for sencha. The vivid green Asatsuyu and aromatic Yutaka Midori types are but a few of the unique Senchas we found in Kagoshima this year.
