About Sencha Tea

Tea Type : Green Tea

Tea Forté's Sencha green tea is skillfully steamed, rolled and pan-fired in a wok to create the ultimate cup. The special characteristic of Sencha tea comes from the method used to dry the tea leaves. After the leaves are picked, they are subjected to a period of steaming, then the leaf is withered to reduce the moisture, after which the leaves are rolled into very fine needles. The process is repeated three times. USDA Organic and Kosher Certified, this green tea has half the caffeine of black tea.

Green tea can even help prevent tooth decay! Just as its bacteria-destroying abilities can help prevent food poisoning, it can also kill the bacteria that causes dental plaque.

Steeping instructions

1. Heat water to 175˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 2-4 minutes.
4. Enjoy!

For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 tsp per 8oz glass.

    Grassy flavor

    Make sure you do not step this too long or it taste like grass. Not a bad green, but not a favorite of mine.

    Not my cup of tea

    I just did not appreciate the flavor of this tea. It is my fault that I did not make a decision by reading the tasting notes, which clearly describe the Sencha Tea on the Tea Forte site. I chose the tea by the processing explanation which stated "Pan Fired", leading me to wishful thinking. I was hoping for a flavor with toasty sweet notes. The folks at Tea Forte kindly accommodated me with my current Tea Forte Green Tea favorite "Jasmine Green".
