Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan with an excellent balance of quality and value. Our Sencha are carefully selected from Uji and is the first flush tea (Ichiban Cha) which is the best quality of all the seasons.
Sencha contains more of the beneficial nutrient Catechin than other green teas, because it is grown in full sunlight, thus it becomes yellow-green in color. Sencha tastes gently astringent and smells wonderfully fresh.

Normal way - Pour 80°C water into a 300-350ml cup and infuse with a sencha tea bag for 1-2 minutes.
Kyusu (Teapot) Method - Place (7-8g) 1.5 tablespoons of Sencha into the Kyusu, pour 80°C water and steep for 1 minute then serve. The second brew will be at 70°C and for the last infusion, use slightly hotter water and a longer brew time to extract the full flavour.
Cold Sencha - Place 1-2 teabags into a bottle of water and put in the fridge for a few hours or overnight and it is ready to drink.
Iced Sencha - This brewing method is time consuming but provides the most noble taste and it creates a finished tea that is low in caffeine, since caffeine is extracted best in hot water. Place (7-8g) 1.5 tablespoons of Sencha into the Kyusu and fill it up with ice. Wait for the ice to thaw naturally at room temperature and it is ready to serve.
