JAPANESE SENCHA TEA
The Tea Centre’s Japanese sencha tea is a tasty green tea with an affordable price point, making it the ideal everyday sip! It is a great introduction to Japanese teas and to green teas in general. Our sencha is often described as having a classy, sweet, and algal flavour profile with slight afternotes of tannin. As a result, sencha umami tasting notes make it the perfect tea to drink with sushi or sashimi. Ideal on its own.
Did you know that sencha is the most popular tea in Japan? If you are after a certified organic version, we also stock sencha organic here. Both of these teas are a gorgeous green-gold colour when brewed and boast a refreshing taste. Sencha is thought to evoke feelings of calm while still providing tea drinkers with the ultimate energy boost. The leaves’ unique cylindrical shape comes from the special process that most Japanese green teas go through. As opposed to being pan-fried like Chinese green teas, sencha is steamed once the oxidization process is complete. Then, the leaves are rolled into their familiar twiggy shape!
