Green Tea Notes #1 | Japanese Sencha

Available to buy online and in-store from our Tea Counter.

About Japanese Sencha

This spring time ‘first flush’ Sencha is from Kagoshima in Japan – a region famed for its fertile volcanic soils. Sencha translates as ‘steamed tea’ – which is the process by which Sencha is made – and has a fresh aroma, reminiscent of freshly cut grass, a dark glossy green leaf and is traditionally served in a Clay Kyusu.

How to brew

Boil water and allow to cool for 2 minutes (75°C) before pouring, then brew for 1-2 minutes. Tea may be infused several times. Drink without milk.

Our new Green Teas can also be enjoyed with cold or ambient temperature water, an ideal alternative during the summer months.

What to eat with Japanese Sencha

Best enjoyed with light foods such as smoked salmon, vegetables and egg or rice dishes. A great companion to shellfish and seafood.
