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.

Japanese Sencha Green tea No 51

Very refreshing when made at the recommended temperature. The strength of the tea allows you to make several cups from the same pot of tea leaves.

Tea makers are trustworthy and reputable in my experience, had a "complaint" they dealt with it immediately and far better than I expected.

Thank you Teamakers
