Sencha (camellia Sinensis) green tea, is made from the first tender emerald green leaves of the plant. Fresh, bright sencha has a grassy bittersweet taste. Enjoyed in the morning to get your day started!
The process by which sencha and other Japenese ryokucha (green tea) are created from Chinese green teas, which are initially pan-fried. Japanese tea is first steamed for 15-20 seconds to prevent oxidation of the leaves. Next, the leaves are rolled, shaped, then dried. This step creates the customary thin cylindrical shape of the tea. Finally, the leaves are sorted and divided into differing quality groups.
The initial steaming step imparts a difference in the flavor between Chinese and Japanese green tea, with Japanese green tea having a more vegetal, almost grassy flavor (seaweed-like). Infusions from sencha and other green teas that are steamed (like most Japanese green teas) are also greener in color and slightly bitter than Chinese-style green teas.
Health benefits include a boost in energy, metabolism, brain stimulant, lowers blood pressure, suppresses body fat and prevents bad breath.
