Sencha is a steamed green tea from the Shizuoka prefecture of Japan, harvested in the early summer (the second flush). It produces a rich, brothy texture, with a clean, very refreshing green aroma. The cup develops a sweet flavor reminiscent of tender steamed veggies and fresh seaweed, with a rounded finish that coats the palate at the end. Our Sencha Overture has a classic sencha flavor, perfect for fans of all things 'green.' Steep at 165°F for 2 minutes

      Similar to the gyokuro to my taste buds. More savory and brothy with more of a dry finish.

      Bright, delicate, and buttery. A bit less vegetal than most senchas, but I like it.

      It is my favorite green tea, great by itself. Not bitter, just right.

      This is a prime example of a good sencha. Really vegetal and almost tastes like spinach.

      This tea is very authentic. I love drinking this and remembering my time living and working in Japan. For a green tea there is very little bitterness and in my experience this is the best for a sore throat.
