Information for tea connoisseurs

Ise Bay in Mie Prefecture, Japan has been producing high-quality tea over 800 years.

When producing Japanese Sencha green tea, the leaves are not ground as with other teas. It is slightly steamed to prevent oxidisation of the leaves. Then, the leaves are rolled and shaped. This step creates the customary, thin and cylindrical shape of the tea leaf which has a very fine and fragile structure. Finally, the leaves go through hot-air drying to reduce the moisture content, which allows long term preservation and to capture the distinctive flavour. 

The flavour of the tea develops during the different season of the year. The First Flush, spring picked Sencha is considered to be the most delicious and fine version of the tea. The flavour also varies from region to region. We work very closely with the producers of this tea and import only the very best quality Sencha.
