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 before 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.)

Hunan Province/China

Hunan Province/China
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.
