Sencha

GREEN TEA

10 reviews

Slender needle-like leaves produce a deeply vegetal taste and aroma, ripe with notes of toasted rice and nori. Harvested in the spring to early summer in the up-and-coming Kagoshima region, the leaves are steamed to perfection to stop oxidation of the leaf, as well as to lock in their deep jade color and flavor.

Tasting Notes:

Magnolia, umami, steamed greens

My "Every Day" Tea...

This became completely necessary to my body and mind from the first sip! I don't want to go a day without it.

Sencha

The sencha tea reminds me of the teas I received from Japan. It has a great subtle flavoring. It is one of my favorites.

Exceptional

I will only buy my Green Tea from Japan. Such a pleasant green tea. Tastes so fresh and clean as if just picked from the farm. Seriously fantastic.

Mellow Sencha

Ever since my two year stent in Japan with PepsiCo Foods International back in ‘77- ‘78 I have been a daily imbiber of Japanese green tea. And Smith’s Sencha is now my go to. It’s bright, vegetative and satisfying anytime of the day. I highly recommend it.

Sencha

Japanese Green Tea

Slender needle-like leaves produce a deeply vegetal taste and aroma, ripe with notes of toasted rice and nori. The leaves are steamed to perfection to stop oxidation of the leaf, as well as to lock in their deep jade color and rich flavor.

Shizuoka Prefecture

Shizuoka Prefecture is located in the Chubu region, on the island of Honshu in Japan. While unable to claim full ownership of Mt. Fuji (its a joint custody thing with Yamanashi Prefecture), Shizuoka can tout being the biggest tea producing region in Japan, which says something. Harvest time for Sencha happens from April through June.
