The special soil conditions, coupled with a special climate, characterize this region and let the plants thrive fantastically. The result is a mild but highly aromatic cup, which is carried by a fine sweetness.
Sencha is a green tea with a distinctive, fresh taste and very uniform, emerald-colored leaves. Typical of Japanese green teas is that they are pre-dried with hot air and then usually treated for a short time with hot steam to interrupt the fermentation.
More than three-quarters of the tea grown in Japanese tea gardens is Sencha. Most regions produce different species, each of which is named after its processing. There are different cultivation methods for green tea in Japan. Sencha comes from open fields (so-called "red en"), which are exposed to full sunlight. It differs from other varieties, such. B. Gyokuro, which grow in reduced sunlight (on so-called "oiishita en").
Green tea should be brewed at a water temperature of 80-85 ° C (leave the water in the kettle for about one minute after cooking).
