Japanese Sencha

£5.95
A delicate and sweet aroma and a flavour of fresh grassy meadows, and a mild astringency that adds a lively note. The tea is gently steamed to 'fix' the leaves and preserve their original green colour before being rolled and dried into a flat needle shape. This is the green tea processing method favoured in Japan. When you break down its name Sencha it tells you itself.  ‘Sen’ means steamed and ‘Cha’ means tea, steamed tea.
