Sencha is Japan’s most popular tea. It is characteristically known for its delicate sweetness and mild astringency. “Tenkaichi” in Japanese means #1 under the sun, or the best. Sencha refers to the first picking of the season- around February in milder climates. Our Premium Sencha Tenkaichi is of highest quality. Its infusion produces a wonderful sweet, buttery, grassy, slight vegetal flavor, and a pale, yet bright green grassy liquor. Only slightly astringent, our sencha has a rich buttery taste that remains lasts for multiple steeps.
