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.

    Love this tea

    My husband and I enjoy having this tea in the afternoon it is a nice refreshing pick me up. I love this tea and using the caffe cups just makes it so much more special. We found this tea while on vacation in Rome and were so happy to be able to get now that we are home.

    Another Green Tea

    I like it, but not as much as the Jasmine.... If this is all I had to substitute for coffee, I'd love it. So far, Forte can do no wrong.

    Tea did not Steep

    I am a super tea drinker. I recently purchased this tea (2 Boxes) and it would not steep. I am going to assume it is because I am receiving old or expired tea leaves. I am paying a lot of money for this tea and there is no reason why the tea should not change the color of my water and steep properly. When I brought this to the attention of Tea Forte, they asked me to return the teas. I am sorry, I do not have the time to put together and return something I already spent the time to purchase. The onus is not on me to prove the product is not up to standard. Tea Forte needs to improve quality control. Because of this, I cannot recommend this tea.

    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".
