Product Description

Sencha tea is produced in Zhejiang Province in China, considered to be the home of green tea. It has a delicate and sweet aroma and a fresh flavour, and a mild astringency that adds a lively note. The tea is gently steamed to 'fix' the leaves and preserve their original green colour before being rolled and dried into a flat needle shape. This is the green tea processing method favoured in Japan. 

This tea should be brewed with water slightly off the boil (about 85-90°C) in order not to destroy its delicate taste, and brewed for a maximum of 2 minutes. Best drunk without milk.
