Description

On the go? Check out our Sencha Tea Bags.

Sencha is the traditional, daily steamed green tea of Japan. Our Sencha is made from prized tea bush cultivars including Sae Midori and Okumidori, and is a blend of the first and second flush harvests from organic farms on Kyushu island in southern Japan. Kyushu's mineral rich volcanic soil, coupled with skillful organic soil management, creates a sweet and full-bodied green tea flavor. This chumushi sencha yields a slightly opaque, bold green infusion with deep umami and juicy mouthfeel.

Rishi Tea on YouTube.

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