SENCHA (Yabukita)


Loose Leaf Tea / 15 Compostable Tea Sachets (75g)

    Product Details

    Sencha is the standard green tea and is the most commonly consumed green tea in Japan. In the production process, picked tea leaves are steamed for 30 to 40 seconds, depending on the softness of the leaves, to stop the oxidizing enzymes. After that, the water is gradually removed and the tea leaves are dried. The tea leaves are then repeatedly rubbed to equalize the moisture in the leaves and to shape them into a needle-like shape. Sencha has a refreshing aroma and a harmonious combination of umami and astringency that is present from the first sip.

    Most Suitable Time to Enjoy:
    It has a perfect balance of caffeine and theanine content, so the best time to drink it is when you want to relax and stay focused. We recommend it for a refreshing pick-me-up after lunch when you gradually wake up and shift to work mode during work. You can also enjoy sencha during meals, as it does not interfere with the taste of food and even gives it a moderate umami flavor.
