Sencha Tea Organic
Taste the popular Sencha tea from Japan
Sencha Tea is the most widely consumed tea in Japan. This typical Japanese green tea is served at just about every occasion. Organic Sencha tea leaves are grown on nutrient-rich volcanic soils in southern Japan in Kagoshima Province.
The fresh spring water from the high altitude tea gardens and the careful cultivation of the tea leaves gives this Sencha tea its full Sencha flavor with that unique hint of umami. The dark green leaves are finely rolled and produce a greenish yellow tea with an intense aroma.
What is Sencha?
You may already be familiar with that other popular Japanese green tea? Matcha tea! Both teas, no stronger, all Japanese green tea is made from the same tea plant; The Camellia Sinensis. The difference between all those Japanese green teas is in the way they are grown, harvested, produced and consumed.
Cultivation of Sencha green tea
For Sencha tea, the tea plants are covered with a net that blocks out sunlight a few days before harvesting. Due to the lack of sunlight, the leaves become thinner, softer and more amino acids and chlorophyll grow in the leaf, which colors it a deep green.
The Green Tea Sencha Harvest
Japanese Sencha Tea is harvested early in the season from May through June.
Only the best leaves are used.
Production of leaf to Sencha tea
For Japanese Sencha tea, the leaves are steamed (to prevent oxidation and capture the nutrients), then rolled and finally dried.

That may be much lower than what you are used to, but at this temperature the tea comes fully into its own. The warmer you brew the tea, the stronger the taste. But Sencha tea should taste soft, which is why you drink the infused tea on water of a lower starting temperature (no boiling water).
