This is our highly praised Signature Sencha Green Tea.
The Spiceworks now source this refreshing Sencha cut Green tea from an established source within China, where the art of steaming Tea was first practiced.
The tea possesses a light and subtle sweetness that sits lightly on the tongue as it is sipped.
The traditional practice of steaming green tea leaves immediately after picking preserves their unique properties. This steaming, sometimes referred to as the Sencha process, takes place within 24 hours of harvesting and inhibits the enzyme activity that causes oxidisation, enabling the tea to retain its bright emerald green leaf colour and preserving its nutritional benefits.
Sencha cut Green tea is a delicate product, therefore, we recommend that you allow no more than 2 minutes for infusion so as to retain the taste of this healthy Tea.
Allow 1 heaped teasppon per cup required.
