Although Japanese in origin, sencha tea is a very popular and frequently consumed drink in China where it is more economically produced and is of a comparable standard. The large-leaf is slightly brittle due to its wiry character, while the dark olive green infusion clearly shows that the middle leaf shoots which contain less caffeine, have been processed. The cup shimmers with a strong green-yellow tone. Extremely soft and mild with a sweet note. Ideal for green tea beginners. Drink from the afternoon onwards.
