This is my favourite green tea ( after Maccha which I savour sparingly.) The Japanese Sencha is light, not at all bitter and lasts well in a pot that only needs topping up from time to time. I find it refreshing and so easy to drink.

Sencha is today by far the most common tea drunk in Japan. It is an incredibly good tea to have as an introduction to Japanese teas, and also to green teas in general. Sencha is classy, sweet and algal, with a slight taste of tannin at the end. Senchan’s algal tones highlight the fish taste, so the tea is especially suited for sushi or sashimi.
