More info

Sencha is the most popular Japanese tea. There are many cultivars and grades of Sencha, which leads to a large spectrum of taste, quality and pricing.  In contrast to Gyokuro and Matcha, Sencha leaves are fully sun-grown. The freshly-picked tea leaves are streamed and then dried as they are rolled, which helps to preserves the advantages of their color and taste.

The infusion has a yellowish color, and the taste is described as balanced - aromatic combination of slightly bitter and umami.

Sencha is brewed with water at 80 °C for about 1 minute. For one glass of water just add about 2 teaspoons of tea. The same leaves can be used 2-3 times shortening the brewing time.
