Sencha

Sencha



Sencha accounts for 75% of green tea produced in Japan. 
It is the most popular and common tea in Japan and served for daily drinking use.
At the tea garden (open-air tea field) buds are picked from plants fully exposed to sunlight, then are stemed and dried as they are kneaded. Sencha has a unique fresh aroma and refined astringency.
Although all Sencha contains caffeine the efficacy of the caffeine in green tea is mild in the presence of other nutrients and vitamins. Nevertheless it does revitalize and wake the drinker in a healthy manner. That is why green tea first came to Japan as a medicine and incidentally there are many Japanese proverbs that refer to its awakening effect in the morning.
