Sencha Green Tea
The Origin Story
Our Japanese Sencha is picked in May on the banks of the Sasama river in Kawane, Shizuoka, expertly steamed and rolled to give its satisfyingly thick texture and sweet, grassy-fresh taste.
Sencha translates as “steamed tea” and this marks the core difference between Chinese and Japanese Teas. Steaming fixes or oxidises the fresh green tea leaves, giving the infusion a fresher, grassy flavour. A completely different tea experience to the pan-firing found in China.
This is one of the best examples of Sencha we’ve come across and we’d highly recommend infusing the tea with slightly cooler water of around 70°C or even lower.
Shizuoka is a renowned centre for high quality green tea production in Japan
Our Sencha is produced on the banks of the Sasama river where firefly dance upon the water's surface during the summer evenings.

Sencha Green Tea
Previously I had sampled Jing's Sencha Supreme until it was no longer available and moved on to this Sencha. I only purchased a relatively small amount, but wished I had bought more as I really like this tea. It is quite silky and has a vibrant fresh green colour. Its taste is sweet and lingering. Also, a small amount goes a long way - well worth the money.
Beautiful greenA lovely light grassy taste and earthy aroma. A lovely light green, yellow colour. Taste wonderfully fresh with no lingering after taste.
Great SenchaThis sencha is excellent, grassy and very tasty, when some senchas can be bland. This one is not in anyway bland. A great tea and an exceptional sench, almost as good as the gyokuro.
Great!Ok, this is an expensive tea, but do you know that you can steep it up to 5 times! Quit exceptional... The lower the temperature, less bitter it taste, I use it for a month now and I am addicted to it. The taste is grassy and one of the best seshas ever... So to me it is worth it, and I tried a lot of them...
