Sencha that has gone through a longer steaming process.
Be the first to review this product

This special green tea goes through a longer steaming process, allowing the natural flavors and colors to imbue the tea leaves. And although the steaming process decreases the tea’s aroma, it also cuts the astringency creating a richer and more full-bodied flavor compared to regular Sencha. The difference in the process leads to a unique blend of a cultural favorite.


Bring the water to a boil and allow it to cool to 80°C/176°F. Steep 1 heaping teaspoon (3g) of Deep Steam Sencha for 30 seconds to 1 minute in 1 cup (240 ml/8 oz) of hot water.

Deep Steam Sencha! Yay! I appreciate the fact they took the time to steam this longer than your usual sencha. It comes thru in the flavor, aroma, and to the naked eye! It’s vegetal, but sweet. It’s fairly creamy and quite clean tasting. Pretty brothy. Slightly Peppery. I like it!

This is a slightly different-than-I-was-expecting sort of Sencha. A lighter grassy tone here than in a typical Japanese Sencha. A delicious hint of toasty-ness in the aroma of the brewed tea that I really liked. Warm, nutty tones to the cup.

This is sweet, but toward mid-sip, there is a savory tone that is almost broth-like. Slightly salty, even.

Thanks, Nicole_Martin, for sample of this tea!
This week my taste buds have changed due to the snow and cold weather.
I chose this as the first tea of the day.
Like all Sencha’s – this one tastes great.
No sugar, sweeteners or milk needed.
This has a robust flavor, deep aroma, and dark green appearance.
