Sencha is the most popular variety of green tea in Japan. It is characterised by a natural sweetness and a distinct fragrance that some liken to the freshness of sea grasses. This premium blend of sencha is composed of a higher percentage of leaves taken from the higher positions on the mountain, which receive more sunlight and therefore achieve more sweetness. This results in the smoothest and richest brew of Sencha.

Optimum care is taken during the processing to minimise any damage to or oxidation of the leaf to ensure all of the important chemical compounds (antioxidants, etc) are retained.
