Sencha is the most commonly enjoyed variety of Japanese green tea. Sencha contains more of the beneficial nutrient Catechin than other green teas, because it is grown in full sunlight, thus it becomes yellow-green in color. Sencha tastes gently astringent and smells wonderfully fresh. Sencha is harvested three or four times a year. But with each harvest, the tea becomes slightly lower in quality. This is why the first flush, or Ichiban Cha, is the best. Our Sencha is made exclusively from Ichiban Cha.You will certainly be delighted with the fine and generously harmonized flavor of our Sencha.

Crisp, Bright, Fresh, Delicious Review by Azzrian
What a wonderful offering from Zen Tea Life! This tea is so delicious! Tastes like summer, a fresh mowed lawn, clean and fresh. The lingering after taste is perfection.
Love this tea! (Posted on 12/8/12)
