Our Sencha has a cool, sweet-vegetal character, with a wonderful fragrance that leaves you refreshed and centered.
Japan started making sencha in the 18th century. It is a carefully blended tea by an expert blender. The leaves are steamed, pressed, then rolled and dried into loose leaf. It is one of the most popular teas in Japan. The inherent sweetness of this tea can be enjoyed if you have it with a savory snack.
*We thank Cody Kroll, a local artist who specializes in Japanese teaware and scuplture, for allowing us the use of his pottery to present our tea. You can visit his shop at http://www.kumagama.etsy.com
