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.

Lovely, mild green tea. This is my second order of this tea, and will keep coming back for more! It’s hard to find decent decaf green tea leaves anywhere else.
I was bought this as a present, had to buy some more! Great flavour, the best green tea I've found by far. I tend to reuse the leaves up to 3 times and find the flavour is just as good each time. Would definitely recommend.
The best green tea i have ever tasted already ordered it again
This is my second order of the Sencha Green Tea Decaf. I love the flavour and the fact that I am drinking proper tea leaves. I put them in the diffuser in my tea pot, and for extra flavour, add a couple of peppermint tea bags to the bottom of the pot. I’ve received excellent service and prompt delivery both times. Highly recommend!
Excellent tea at a very reasonable price and quick delivery, I would certainly recommend Teacakes.
