Originally consumed by Buddhist monks as a remedy, it is today considered a source of inspiration and vitality. Sencha, means "steamed tea" (Sen = steam, Cha = tea).
When being produced, the tea leaves are folded lengthwise while drying on warm trays, and then they are heated in wood-fueled pans in order to stop the oxidation. You will immediately recognize the long, well-worked, grass-green leaves in this quality tea. After the infusion, the full leaf structure can be seen, and the cup has a bright yellow color. The fresh, grass-like flavor, with a fine sweetness, is a pleasure for every Sencha enthusiast. Organically cultivated, but not certified.
