Both green and black teas can be produced from the same bush. In green manufacture, the freshly plucked leaves are steamed
or heated (to kill the enzymes that cause fermentation) immediately and then bruised either by machine or hand.According to Japanese standards, the freshly plucked leaves are steamed prior to processing.
Next, the leaf is pan-fried - a process that gives
the tea its distinctive glossy looks and feel, then expertly blended and flavoured. Sencha is known for its dark green, needle shaped leaf and pale green, yellowish liquor. 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.
We insist on using only natural flavouring oils, high quality tea tastes good and natural flavours do not overpower the great taste of
the high-grade tea, also natural flavours leave no aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. (The practice for some making flavoured
tea is to use overpowering artificial flavours, which may be an indicator of a covered up lower quality tea). Natural flavours tend to be more delicate and subtle, most find this a refreshing change and is one of the desired qualities of our naturally flavoured teas. A wonderfully refreshing tea that is an absolute must try for all Sencha lovers.
