Japanese Sencha Tea
Suitable for everyday tea drinking this is the emperor of green teas, hand picked, deep steamed and carefully dried right after harvest in a tradition style. The aroma is sweet and herbaceous from the long emerald tea leaves. It has a slightly sweet flavour that will linger with you long after sipping the tea. The balance of sweet and salty is reminiscent of fresh cut grass and seaweed. Rich in vitamin C, perfect in the afternoon.
When brewing Sencha, don’t overheat the water – steep the leaves at 80-85ºC for around 20 seconds. A nice short brew really boosts that sweet aroma. Longer steeping (up to 90 seconds) can bring out Sencha’s lingering bitterness and intensify the flavour, but like anything, it’s down to personal taste.
