Sencha is a Japanese green tea, Sencha - Its name means infused tea. This is the every day green tea of Japan. You can find it in some form in most Japanese households. Sencha have the strongest potency of all Japanese teas in Vitamin C, and Vitamin B2 (aka Riboflavin, which helps formulate the red blood cells). This tea contains a moderate to high caffeine level.

Sencha, literally meaning, ‘roasted tea’, pertains to the past processing methods used to make this most popular of all Japanese green tea. Today, sencha is initially steam treated before further processing with hot-air drying and finally pan-frying. Over three quarters of all tea now produced in the Japanese tea gardens is in fact graded as sencha, a tea selected for its pleasant sharpness and fresh qualities complementing a leaf of high uniformity and rich emerald colour.

Green tea from the Shizuoka region of Japan. Sencha translates as 'common,' but there is nothing ordinary about this exquisite 'spider leg' tea. The latter refers to the leaves' long, slender shape. Our 'Sencha Overture' is a wonderfully delicate second flush (summer) tea whose soothing taste and fresh green scent make it a perfect everyday treat.
