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 170˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 60 to 90 seconds only. Sencha brews quickly, and you don’t want to over-steep and risk bitterness.
4. Enjoy!

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

    fresh flavor

    Light yellow/green in color this blend has a fresh flavor. Unfortunately, this blend doesn’t have the typical grassy flavor expected from sencha. Nonetheless, it is a lovely mellow green tea.

    Somethings changed

    I have purchased the same size sencha tea in the past and I recall the leaves being bigger. They seem to have been chopped up more now. It’s fine. Not positive if I will reorder immediately. I have tried other companies sencha teas but I do prefer the taste of this tea. Just wasn’t positive if the quality has changed or not.

    Love this organic Green tea

    I like this tea straight, but prefer to mix it with dried herbs from our small organic farm. This green tea with holy basil (aka Tulsi) and the green tea with mint are my favorites.
