Japanese Tea

 Tea arrived in Japan via china in 805, it is held with great reverence and custom. The Japanese tea ceremony is so interwoven into the fabric of the country’s tradition and life. Teas are usual steamed and unfermented. Brew very lightly, it is argued, with water just off the boil. Milk or lemon is not used.

Sencha (green)

Sencha is from Hunan Province which produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavour noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body. In Hunan the tea starts growing about March 15th, and between then and the end of April the quality is very good. Sencha is commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies marking events of personal importance. In this type of ceremony it is the ritual that is of paramount importance as the individual is being acknowledged 
This Tea is also available in our American branch here.
