Sencha - Tea Blossoms

Sencha

Sencha

Sencha is a steamed green tea made from small-leaf Camellia sinensis (tea bushes).

After picking, the processing of sencha green tea starts with a quick steam of the fresh tea leaves, preventing oxidization and locking in the green colour and flavor. The leaves are then rolled, shaped, and dried.

With moderate to low levels of caffeine, it can provide a nice boost without keeping you up at night. With a vibrant green color and fresh flavor, it also makes a refreshing iced tea.

Hint: For the best brew, place one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup into a teapot with the water at 170 degrees C. Leave for two minutes for a perfect brew every time.

This tea is best served hot with a meal or enjoyed on its own. Sugar and honey can also be added for extra sweetness.
