Japanese Fukujyu Sencha Green Tea
In Stock From £4.95
Grown in full sunlight, sencha leaves are fresh, fragrant and full of vitality. Characterised by an elegant balance of subtle sweetness and mild astringency, sencha is the perfect tea for refreshing the palette before or after a meal.
For the sencha connoisseur with a discerning taste this Sencha is an excellent choice. It is highly valued as a luxury tea and is used in Japanese tea ceremonies marking important family events.
Place 3g (1tsp) of tea per person in a pot or cup infuser. Using boiling water to steep green tea can damage the leaves, so instead use water that is around 80°c (boiling water that has been allowed to cool for 2 minutes). Brew for 3 - 5 minutes according to taste. The same leaves can be re-used for up to 3 infusions.
