Tencha, the tea leaves that eventually become the wonderful brew that is Matcha…

This tea is much lighter than the senchas that we have. It is smooth, and vegetal and creamy, but with very little body and astringency. It is quite lovely for the afternoon, when you just need a gentle wake up.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

I’ve never had Tencha before but for as flavorful as matcha is, it surprises me that Tencha is lighter than sencha.

Somehow it seems to have the flavor of matcha, just very thinned out and mild. It’s quite interesting. -Sarah
