What is Sencha?

Sencha is a type of Japanese green tea made from young tea leaves grown in tea gardens that are not covered, allowing them to absorb plenty of sunlight. These leaves are then steamed, rolled, and dried to create the tea. It is the most popular and widely consumed tea in Japan.

The Flavor and Aroma of Sencha

Sencha is characterized by its refreshing, crisp aroma and its elegant astringency. It offers a balance of sweetness, umami, bitterness, and astringency, providing a unique and transparent flavor profile that leaves a lingering sweet aftertaste.

Health Benefits of Sencha

The polyphenols in Sencha can help lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels, making it beneficial for preventing hypertension and diabetes. The high catechin content also offers antibacterial properties, which can help prevent colds, improve oral hygiene, and prevent tooth decay.

Safe Organic Tea for Daily Consumption

Organic Sencha is grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides, making it safe for daily consumption.

The Journey of Sencha

Sencha is made from young tea leaves grown in uncovered gardens, which are then steamed, rolled, and dried. This process gives Sencha its distinctive flavor and aroma.
