China Green Sencha Grade 1


China Green Sencha Grade 1 : The most popular tea in Japan. The flavour depends on the season & place it is produced. This sencha is Grade 1 , meaning it is one of the most delicious coming from the first flush of the year. The color is a golden green and has a pleasant grassy flaour. Sencha tea leaves are first steam pressed, then rolled & dried into a loose tea.

This tea must be decocted. This meaning, to begin with the tea leaves are steeped in cold water and simmered  for a lengthly period of time before consumming. Anywhere from 15- 45 min.

Depending on the temperature of the water being decocted in, the flavour will be different. It will be relatively mellow if decocted in not too hot water. Whereas in hot water, it will be more astringent (bitter). Leave lid off when simmering to produce a stronger decoction.

1 1/2 Tbsp (7-8gms) per litre
