Tea Story

This finest quality Sencha Supreme green tea from Ise Bay in Mie Prefecture, Japan is our most revered, award-winning tea. Our exquisite Japanese Sencha Supreme Tea Triunes were awarded the coveted three-star ranking at the 2016 Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards. The supreme quality of this exquisite tea is delicately cultivated by our exceptionally talented Japanese tea farmers, whose tea expertise has been passed from generation to generation for over 800 years.

Our Japanese Sencha Supreme green tea imparts a mellow sweetness, perfectly balanced by a mild and refreshing astringency and delicate umami notes. The fresh sea breeze of the bay area is reflected in the tea’s complex flavour and intoxicating aroma.

We've packed the same Sencha tea into our biodegradable triune teabags as in our loose leaf caddies, so you can now enjoy the loose leaf experience with the convenience of a teabag. 

Ingredients - Pure Japanese green tea.

Health benefits - Japanese Sencha Supreme contains exceptionally high amounts of the beneficial nutrient ‘catechin’. A ‘catechin’ is a powerful antioxidant, that can help to prevent cellular and genetic damage by neutralising unstable molecules - also known as ‘free radicals’. Japanese Sencha green tea is also rich in healthy vitamin C.

Information for tea connoisseurs

Sencha green tea is the most popular tea in Japan, representing about 80 percent of Japanese tea production. The Japanese enjoy Sencha hot in the cooler months of winter and chilled during the hot months of summer.

We work very closely with our Japanese tea farmers to ensure that only the most exceptional and high-quality tea leaves end up in your teacup. Supreme Sencha is grown in full sunlight and is delicately handpicked by skilled tea farmers. When producing Japanese Sencha green tea, the leaves are not ground as with other teas.  It is slightly steamed to prevent oxidization 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.
