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.

    A light slightly perfumed tea that is perfect at any time of the day and is especially pleasant at the end of a meal.
