  • Sencha is the traditional steamed green tea of Japan.

Organic Japanese Sencha Green Tea - Top Grade


Product Description

Our most popular Japanese green tea. Bold and sweet with hints of roasted flavours.   Sencha represents about 80% of Japans total tea production. The tea is picked relatively early in the tea harvesting season (early April to late May.)  Once brewed the tea is a pale yellow with the aroma of cooked vegetables. The taste is slightly sweet, earthy and light with a soft but long lasting aftertaste. The liquor is thick and coats your tongue almost instantly.

Region: Kirishima Mountain, Kagoshima, Japan.

Amount: 3g /1½ teaspoons
