Sencha tea is an infusion green tea originating from Japan. The tea is prepared following a steam based processing method that allows it to develop aromas and flavours that remind you of greenery and the ocean.
Greenish golden in colour, the tea can be smooth drinking or astringent by varying steeping times to suit your palate.

50g x loose leaf 100% organic tea

How is it made?Made from certified organically grown small leaf Camellia Sinensis tea leaves that are steamed, rolled, and dried.
Preparation1-2 teaspoons, 250mL 70-80°C water, 1 minute.

Hotter water or extended steeping can bring out Sencha’s lingering bitterness and intensify the flavour, which might be your preference.

For a traditional cup, prepare using a Japanese kyusu teapot.

Tasting NotesLike the ocean with fresh green vegetables, seaweed and grass. Smooth or bitter depending on steep time.
