Kyushu Decaffeinated Green Sencha
This tea is based on a Sencha style green tea from Hunan Province in South Eastern China. In Hunan, Sencha is manufactured according to Japanese standards in which the freshly plucked leaves are steamed prior to processing.
Chinese production of traditionally foreign tea grades:
In recent years, a select number of Chinese manufacturers have begun to produce exceptional examples of tea traditionally associated with other producing regions, most notably Japan, i.e. Sencha. While this may seem counterintuitive, the practice is essentially the same as that of “New World” vineyards growing traditionally “Old World” grape varieties. (Think of Cabernet Sauvignon, a French grape, attaining near-legendary status at the hands of Australian vintners.)
The leaf is pan fried - a process that gives the tea its distinctive glossy looks and feels, then it's expertly blended and flavoured. Like all green teas, Sencha is known to be exceptionally high in antioxidants and polyphenols As such, recent scientific research appears to indicate that it may have an impact in the prevention of certain types of cancers.
When finished, Sencha is known for its dark green, needle shaped leaf and pale green, yellowish liquor.

Excellent service and product. So much nicer to talk to someone.
Really nice tea and efficient service. Highly recommended.
This is a very pleasant tea - a good alternative to normal tea. It is decaffeinated which suits us. Needs to infuse for at least 15 mins to get the full flavour. delighted with this purchase and as always the service was outstanding. Thank you.
This tea is delicious! I tried it as a sample and have gone on to order a bigger pack. I get up to 3 cups with each spoonful so really good value too.
This tea is deliciously refreshing with a lovely mild flavor.
