Our Organic Sencha is a lovely daily Sencha from Japan’s southern Kagoshima prefecture. The growing region is known for humid, sub-tropical coastal weather, hot springs, and gorgeous tea gardens.

Sencha tea is Japan’s most famous green tea, it generally refers to the first picking of the season- which is around February in milder climates.

Our Organic Sencha’s dry leaf is shiny in appearance, deep-green in colour with flecks of pale green stems throughout, and has a heady, sweet pine nut aroma. Once steeped, Organic Sencha has a buttery mouthfeel, and a smooth taste that is truly balanced! It is sweet and savoury without any strong astringency or bitterness- its taste is light, buttery, vegetal and smooth.

This is a wonderful introductory sencha tea, as it is balanced, light, and welcoming. You may enjoy it hot, or iced.
