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.

    Simple Serenity

    This tea has rapidly become a favourite of mine thanks to its simple yet calming flavour. A bit earthy, yet still crisp and clear, this tea can serve as a companion to a period of relaxation, or partner with a meal in place of other refreshment. Like any green, of course, brewing it in water too hot will turn it from refreshing to bitter, but even its overly steeped flavour has a certain appeal to it. Overall, if all you seek is the taste of green tea and a little bit of serenity along with it, this is an excellent choice to make. I would recommend this tea as a meal companion or a standalone drink, especially ideal for watching the skies on rainy days.

    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.
