Sweet, vegetal steamed tea leaf. From Kagoshima, Japan this leaf is grown near a volcano. It is typical for the farmers to wipe the leaf of volcanic ash, giving this Green Tea wonderful characteristics.
How To Brew:
1 tsp. at 170F for 2 minutes
170F = just before a full boil
Camellia Sinensis Sencha green tea plants are a bit different to other forms of green tea. The plant is exposed to direct sunlight throughout its life, producing mass amounts of Vitamin C. Our Sencha leaves are steamed when processed keeping the nutritional content in tact, with beautiful smooth vegetal notes.
It’s a delicious and understated green. Definitely my new favourite green tea. Don’t over steep it though. Like any good green tea it requires attention to the temperature and duration of steeping or it becomes bitter. Make a whole pot though, and steep it right, you’re good for the whole morning!
Sencha Green, Our Go To Morning Tea
Our morning health routine includes juice of 1/2 a lemon each in warm water. Then we've gotten in the habit of adding Grow Tea Japanese Sencha Green tea to top up our mugs .... and then another mug of green tea. Starts our day the right way. And a little tea goes quite a long way, growing stronger as it steeps in the pot. We love this tea - every day!
I've started ordering at GTC about half a year ago.
And I just love their teas and their different options so much, but the Japanese sencha green tea is definitely my favorite. The taste is very good and it's so refreshing!
This has been my go -to tea especially for the colder weather! It's literally comfort in a cup :)
