Sencha

Japanese Sencha Tea
Sencha (jap. 煎茶) is a green tea whose special characteristic is a distinctive and fresh taste and which has very uniform, emerald-colored leaves. Typical for Japanese green teas is that they are usually treated with hot steam for a short time to prevent the fermentation after they have been pre-dried with hot air.

Over three quarters of tea grown in Japanese tea gardens is Sencha. Most regions produce different types, which are named after their processing. Rolled needle-shaped sencha is processed in Shizuoka and the Yame region of Fukuoka. In other areas, such as Kyushu, the commoral leaves are processed.

For green tea, there are various methods of planting in Japan. Sencha comes from open fields (red ones) that get full sunlight. It differs from other types of tea, such as Gyokuro, which grow with reduced sun exposure (oiishita en). The color and quality of Sencha varies, depending on the origin as well as the processing of the tea.

Late harvests of Sencha have a stronger taste. The first Sencha harvest of the year is available from April in the south of Japan (Kagoshima Prefecture) and is known for its high vitamin content and sweetish taste.

As usual in green tea, Sencha is poured with hot water at 60 ° C. to 80 ° C. and allowed to stand for one or two minutes. You will find an exact preparation recommendation for each tea in the product description.
