Sencha Green Tea
Click to enlarge image(s)

One of the most popular green teas in the world, Sencha is rolled, steamed and then pan fired to seal in the flavor. Slender and flat, Sencha tea leaves have a bright green coloration.

Sencha is known to be from Japan but our current grade of Sencha Green Tea is grown on one of the largest single-owned farms in Zhejiang China. Japanese-style shade grown steamed teas are this Chinese estates specialty. The estate is USDA organic certified and meets strict tea import standards.

The mountain mists of Zhejiang help protect the tea leaves from direct sunlight. Due to the high altitude the mist remains and provides a natural barrier against the elements. By covering the tea plants under canopies, allowing the leaves to only receive indirect light Japanese tea growers try to artificially produce the same result.

This tea is sold loose leaf, meaning it will not arrive packed in individual tea bags.
