Japanese Sencha is a wonderful light refreshing super green tea. There is no bitter aftertaste that you can sometimes get with green tea-bags, just a clean, lightly fragranced tea. The Japanese Sencha tea leaves are gathered, steamed and rubbed resulting in a beautiful green golden colour. Apart from tasting great, there are wonderful health benefits. Japanese sencha is extremely high in polyphenols, catechins and antioxidants – scientific research has suggested that these elements have powerful health benefits.
With our Sencha, if you prefer the taste to be mellow and light then simply use cooler water. Boil the kettle first and let the boiled water sit for about 30 seconds before using. For those who want a punchier, stronger taste then use hotter water – let the boiled water settle for about 10 seconds before using. It is, however, very important to use water that is off the boil when brewing this lovely green tea.
