Originally consumed by Buddhist monks as a remedy and for spiritual composure, Sencha is today considered a source of inspiration and vitality. It means steamed tea: Sen =stream, Cha = tea. Firstly the tea leaves are folded lengthwise while drying on warm trays, and then they are heated in wood-fuelled 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 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 every Sencha enthusiast!
