Japanese Sencha Tea
Flavour NotesDelicate, Sweet, Vegetal, Umami
Japanese Sencha is a refreshing organic green tea.
The leaves of Japanese Sencha are thin and needle-like. Once harvested, the leaves are steamed. The deep green colour of the leaves is an indicator of the tea’s quality.
Japanese Sencha has a clean and pure flavour. In addition to the rich umami flavour we expect for green tea, this has a delicate and natural sweetness.
As well as being delicious, Japanese Sencha is also rich with antioxidants and is an ideal digestif.
You can re-infuse this tea up to 3 times after the initial brew. Each infusion will reveal a difference in flavour.
Recommended brew method
When infusing Japan Sencha tea, we advise not to stir the leaves in the pot. As this tea is very delicate, stirring the leaves can release too many tannins which will affect the flavour and could make the tea bitter. Instead, leave the tea to rest and release its natural sweetness.
