Traditional Japanese Sencha Green Tea

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

This is high quality Sencha green tea from Uji in Kyoto, Japan. Sencha is highly valued as a luxury tea and used in Japanese tea ceremonies marking important family events. Japan produces some of the best green teas in the world.

Sencha can only be picked at certain times of year. The leaves aren’t normally ready for harvesting in the first pick of the year, known as Ichibancha. Instead, our Sencha  tea is harvested when the tea trees have only three sprouts, which is believed by generations of Japanese tea farmers to be the time when the leaves will produce Sencha tea with the most potent, fresh and relaxing aroma and taste.

Sencha is the traditional steamed green tea of Japan. Steaming preserves tea’s fresh character and vivid green color by quickly halting natural tea oxidation. Sencha is finished with a light roast to develop a light pine aroma. Sencha’s bright green infusion has a refreshing energy with a balance of juicy-sweet flavor, deep umami and a crisp, refreshing finish.

This WellTea Japanese Sencha  is also one of the few were their tea colour is actually green and not yellow. Sencha green tea bittersweet taste complements seafood and chocolate very well. This tea variety also shares the same health benefits found in other types of green tea.

WellTea Sencha Miyazaki Green Tea Quick View

Miyazaki Sencha Green Tea

Miyazaki Sencha tea comes from Japan’s fourth largest tea-producing region. The reasonably priced Miyazaki Sencha is similar to a medium steamed Sencha tea but without the price tag. This makes it an excellent choice if you want to indulge in drinking Japanese tea throughout the tea and premium Japanese teas are outside your price range. The leaves of Miyazaki Sencha can look as though they weren’t harvested until autumn, due to their rustic look. However, when added to a cup with warm water, their mellow yet slightly fruity aroma is released. You can then sit back, close your eyes and bask in the sweet scents and tastes, picturing yourself enjoying a cup of fresh tea at the beautiful plantation where Miyazaki Sencha is cultivated.

WellTea Kukicha Green Tea Quick View

Kukicha Green Tea

Kukicha tea is fondly nicknamed ‘twig tea’ for its distinctive appearance. Pronounced Ku-key-cha, this tea is made up of tea leaves mixed with young tea plant stems. So when buying a packet of Kukicha you will discover that it contains both medium-green and yellow pieces of tea plant. Kukicha green tea is a delightful Japanese tea for sharing a pot with friends or a relaxing cup on your own. Kukicha is regarded as one of the freshest tasting Japanese green teas, with a slightly bitter taste. When added to a teapot or cup with near boiling water, Kukicha then takes on a pale green-yellow colour and sweet scented fragrance. Another key characteristic of Kukicha green tea is that it is not roasted after it is harvested, but merely steamed. If you prefer roasted tea, WellTea supplies lots of roasted varieties of Japanese green tea, offering more woody tones of honey and grain.

WellTea Sencha Fukamushi Green Tea Quick View

Sencha Fukamushi Green Tea

When tea leaves are harvested in Japan they go through a very precise steaming process to ensure the aroma and flavour can be released when it arrives in your mug or tea pot. Sencha Fukamushi is a Premium tea which goes through a deeper phase of steaming than most other types of tea. This is where it gets its name ‘Fukamushi’ referring to the deep steaming process, whereas Chumushi tea is produced with medium steaming and for Asamushi tea steaming is light. The deep steaming phase helps to further reduce the tea leaf’s vegetal qualities while further softening and sweetening its taste.
