China Sencha Organic Green Tea

  • £4.20

China Sencha Organic Tea, an exquisite, delicately leafed Chinese Sencha: light green in the cup, with a continual but gentle breath of bitter~sweetness.
Sencha is one of the best-known green tea types. Originally consumed by Buddhist monks, it is today considered a source of inspiration. Sencha means steamed tea: Sen = steam, Cha = tea. Firstly, the tea leaves are folded lengthwise while drying on warm trays, and then they are heated in wood-fuelled pans in order to stop the fermentation. You will immediately recognize the long, well-worked, grass-green leaves in this quality tea. After the infusion, the full leaf structure can be seen, and the cup has a bright yellow colour. The fresh, grass-like flavour and fine tartness are a pleasure for every Sencha enthusiast!
Cup Colour: chartreuse.
Amount of tea per cup: 1 heaped teaspoon.
Brewing time: Use freshly drawn water at 70 to 80 C and steep 2-3 minutes.
