Health benefits - Japanese Sencha Supreme contains exceptionally high amounts of the beneficial nutrient ‘catechin’.

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.
