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.

    So disappointed

    I knew when I opened the canister and saw the tea it probably wouldn’t be great. Lacked the green color and aroma of a good sencha, which I’ve been drinking for yrs. This tastes more like an oolong if I use a lot. Overall lacks taste and certainly can’t get a second steep, as I do many others that I’ve tried. Leaves look old and small.

    This green tea is very much a Grassy green tea. I did not appreciate it the first time I bought it but every now and then it seems to appeal to me. Satisfying only if you are in the mood for grassy.

    My favorite green tea

    I drink green tea for its health benefits and not because I like the taste. Sencha is the best green tea I’ve had so far. I actually enjoy drinking it. Love the canisters. They keep the tea fresh and I don’t have to hide it.

    Sencha is a tea with a required taste. Therefore for me, it only gets three stars

    Other tea lovers might love this tea. I don’t know what I expected but it was not that. I am sure others will rate it higher. For me, it is not a tea I would reorder immediately.

    Love loose leaf Sencha

    I drink two or three cups of loose leaf Sencha per day. Sooo much better than the bags of green tea I drank for years.
