Description

Sencha Production

The process by which sencha and other Japanese ryokucha (緑茶, green tea) is created differs from Chinese green teas, which are initially pan-fired. Japanese green tea is first steamed for between 15–20 seconds to prevent oxidization of the leaves. Then, the leaves are rolled, shaped, and dried. This step creates the customary thin cylindrical shape of the tea. Finally, the leaves are sorted and divided into differing quality groups.

The initial steaming step imparts a difference in the flavour between Chinese and Japanese green tea, with Japanese green tea having a more vegetal, almost grassy flavour (some taste seaweed-like). Infusions from sencha and other green teas that are steamed (like most common Japanese green teas) are also greener in colour and slightly more bitter than Chinese-style green teas.

    I drink a lot of green tea and Japanese green tea is my favorite because I love the grassy taste that is typical of Japanese green teas. Sencha is a very popular green tea in Japan and I have had it from many online tea retailers and let my tell you, this Sencha is quality! Buy it, drink it, and enjoy it!!!!!!

    After trying many green tea options I settled on this Japanese Sencha. I drink it throughout the day and the taste and texture never seizes to amaze me. It helps with digestion, puts you in calm and alert state, and lifts up your spirit. Thanks for providing such great tea. It’s an important part of my life.

    I’ve only had a few other organic Japanese Senchas, but this is right up there with the best of those. If you’re familiar with the style, this one is true to form — fresh, grassy, vegetal flavors. And the leaves can be steeped at least twice without losing much of their potency.

    The price is also about as good as you’re going to find for organic loose-leaf Japanese Sencha.

    All in all, well worth an order. (Oh, and Divinitea was pretty quick with shipping, too.)
