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, shaped, and dried. This step creates the customary, thin and cylindrical shape of the tea leaf which has a very fine and fragile structure. Finally, after drying, the leaves are fried to aid in their preservation and to add 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.

A fantastic sencha tea
Monday, 9 July 2018  |  Ioana

A fantastic sencha tea - the strength and depth of the scent and taste actually puts me in mind of matcha. It's absolutely delicious, and gives me a good burst of energy.
