Our favourite organic Sencha from Kagoshima.

This Sencha is made from 4 kinds of green tea leaves.

Sencha (煎茶) is a type of Japanese ryokucha (緑茶, green tea) which is prepared by steeping whole tea leaves in hot water. Unlike Matcha, which is powdered tea that is mixed with hot water. Sencha is also grown mostly unshaded and steamed to prevent oxidation which allows it to keep its bright green colour. Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan and makes up over half of Japan's annual tea harvest. It has a refreshing leafy flavour with umami notes, mild bitterness, a light sweetness with a lingering aftertaste.
