This green tea is primarily sourced from the Shizuoka region near Tokyo and has a wonderful light green colour with a reasonable depth of flavour. The result is a very smooth green tea.

Sencha, which literally means 'Roasted Tea' is made without grinding the tea leaves. It is steamed for between 15-45 seconds to prevent oxidation of the leaves. This initial steaming step imparts a difference in the flavour between Chinese and Japanese green tea. Green tea contains antioxidant polyphenols which are thought to improve health. The Japanese drink Sencha either hot or cold.
