With 80% of Japanese tea grown for sencha, it is by far the most popular tea in Japan!
All teas are special, but Sencha is a little extra special because of its unique growing and processing practices. This baby is grown in full sunlight, thus giving it that spunky yellow-green color what it’s on the plant. During the processing, sencha is steamed rather than pan-fired (like many Chinese green teas), resulting in a lighter grassy, earthy flavor. The steamed leaves are then rolled into tight little pin needles. Sencha also contains more catechin than other green teas - full of natural antioxidants!
