Sencha is a steamed green tea from the Shizuoka prefecture of Japan, harvested in the early summer (the second flush). It produces a rich, brothy texture, with a clean, very refreshing green aroma. The cup develops a sweet flavour reminiscent of tender steamed veggies and fresh seaweed, with a rounded finish that coats the palate at the end. Our Sencha Overture has a classic sencha flavour, perfect for fans of all things 'green.'

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 70°C for 2 minutes.

fresh from origin

In the Japanese tea tradition, the texture of the tea itself is extremely important. At the end of the tea making process, the tea master will carefully blend in tiny, broken up 'tea dust' to give the finished cup more body and richness. You can actually see these particles when you scoop out your tea. You also see them in your cup - Sencha should have a lovely, slightly cloudy appearance. This contributes to the 'umami' of the tea (the 5th taste - the others being sweet, salty, sour and bitter). Taste and enjoy!
