JAPANESE SENCHA TEA
The Tea Centre’s Japanese Sencha is a beautiful green tea with an affordable price point, making it the ideal everyday sip. This smooth sencha is a great introduction to the world of Japanese teas, which are known for their brightness in both taste and colour. In regards to the former, Japanese Sencha has a sweet grassy flavour accompanied by soft tannins. As a result, this aromatic and umami sencha pairs perfectly with sushi or sashimi. Ideal on its own at any time of day.
Did you know that Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan? For this reason, The Tea Centre carries a variety of sencha, including premium batches (Shimizu Sencha) and organic sencha. Both of these teas are super refreshing and brew up a golden green colour upon infusion. Moreover, sencha leaves are particularly verdant, which 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!
This green tea doubles as a luxurious tea gift. Specifically, we also retail this sencha in a gift tin of 25 tea bags. When you’re ready to explore Japanese green teas further, we encourage you to also try our toasty genmaicha or premium-grade gyokuro. Alternatively, shop our collection of global green teas here.
