Sencha Green Tea
Sencha is one of the best known green tea types. Originally consumed by Buddhist monks as a remedy and for spiritual composure, it is today considered a source of inspiration and vitality. Sencha means boiled tea: Sen = boil, Cha = tea. Firstly the tea leaves are folded lengthwise while drying on warm trays, then they are heated in wood-fueled pans in order to stop the fermentation. You will immediately recognize the long, well-worked, grass green leaves in this quality tea. After the infusion, the full leaf structure can be seen, and the cup has a bright yellow color. The fresh, grass-like flavor with a fine sweetness is a pleasure for each Sencha enthusiast!
An ounce will make roughly 11-17 cups of tea depending on leaf weight. (1 tsp of tea = (1) 8oz cup)
