12 Green Sencha - 60 mugs - Loose Leaf Pouch (80g)
Award-winning whole leaf herbal tea, 100% natural full leaf herb teas with no added flavouring. A refreshing, luxuriously, green sencha tea rich in anti-oxidants. It has wonderfully fresh, grassy notes and light, delicate flavour. ‘Steamed green tea’ means it is smooth, without the bitterness of most green teas. The steaming process retains the vitamin C and up to 6 times the antioxidants of black tea, which are thought to neutralise the harmful effects of free radicals.
Senchado means “the way of sencha”. In Japan today, being invited to “drink sencha” means the equivalent of invited for a tea or coffee. Usually, green sencha green tea is drunk in small cups. Two cups are traditionally enjoyed – the first sweeter, the second slightly bitter.
How to prepare: Infuse for 2-5 minutes, using 1-2 teaspoons per cup. Make this tea with the kettle just under boiling point. Enjoy hot or cold at any time of day. Like all green sencha teas, it can be reinfused to make a second cup.
