Sencha is our highest graded Japanese Green Tea. It is harvested in Nagata Chaen (Nagata Tea Garden) in Uji. This premium tea is ORGANICLLY grown and harvested first flush.

Sencha first flush leaves are usually reserved for Gyokuro or Matcha, therefore this organic Sencha is made of the highest quality of Sencha Tea Leaves. Uji Sencha is processed using a steaming technique. This gives it a delicate aroma of fresh green vegetables and a crisp flavor. The perfect balance of sweetness and astringency that is different from other green teas.
