Steamed green tea from the Shizuoka prefecture of Japan, harvested in the early spring (the first flush). Sencha is one of Japan's most popular and beloved teas. The higher grades, like our Sencha Premier, tend to have more delicate flavour profiles. A crisp and clean cup with notes of freshly steamed edamame. Refreshing, sweet, and much more delicate than most Senchas. If you're new to Sencha (and the vibrant teas of Japan in general), this would be a great place to start.

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

fresh from origin

Premier is a word that means 'first' that comes from the Latin word 'primarius.' It should come as no surprise then that Sencha, like our Sencha Premier, stands at the top of all Japanese ryokucha, or green teas. Representing eighty percent of all green tea production in Japan, it is from Sencha that nearly all other Japanese green teas are made, be it shade grown Gyokuro, roasted Hojicha, or ground Matcha. Unlike Chinese green teas, ryokucha are steamed rather than pan-fired to stop oxidization, which results in greener teas and more vegetal flavors.
