Sencha


About Japan Sencha Kakegawa Loose Leaf Tea


Japan is famed for cultivating the best green teas in the world and Sencha, produced by the city of Kakegawa, is no exception. A superb choice for the green tea novice, Sencha is intense, tangy and refreshing. Using Sencha in a Japanese Tea Ceremony tends to mark events of personal importance, whilst events of life-changing proportion would usually be accompanied by the more potent Matcha.
