Product Description

Tea: Japan Sencha

The deep green needle shaped leaves are a sign of the good quality. The steaming process and Japanese plants give the characteristic umami profile of a premium Japanese Sencha tea with a hint of sweetness. It is an ideal digestif or can be enjoyed any time of day.

Recommended infusion time 6g per 150ml for 1½ minutes at 60C.

Or to intensify the umami character 6g per 150ml for 3 minutes at 40C.

Further short infusions of 30 seconds at 60C are possible.

When infusing this Japan Sencha tea we recommend that you never stir the leaves in the pot. This tea is very delicate and best left to rest otherwise too many tannins will be released.


As with coffee, we source our tea through established relationships with individual farms, cooperatives and trusted partners. Although our business started with coffee, we introduced tea in the 1980s and spent a lot of time developing our selection and creating our very own blends.

Sustainability is an equally important factor in the tea growing process, both to our business and the wider tea industry. The most important part of the entire tea process is that the coffee farmers, their families and their communities all benefit from our relationships. Specifically, we work with tea estates which care for the local environment, work hard to combat climate change and support the workers and their families.
