This type of Japanese green tea is currently the most well known tea on the Japanese market. It requires painstaking processing to obtain dark, green, and flat leaves of uniform size that produce a fresh, grassy aroma and a delicate umami taste. Sencha grants the tea lover many crisp infusions with a distinctly cleansing and warming feeling. It is a good tea for a quiet outing with close friends.
Sencha is a great choice for someone just starting to explore Japanese green teas.
