Tea Of The Week

Dry leaf form of sencha green tea

Sencha (煎茶) is the most commonly produced tea in Japan, accounting for nearly 77% of all Japanese tea production. Usually the top two leaves and bud are picked, as with most teas produced elsewhere. Sencha is picked, then steamed for 30 to 60 seconds, then undergoes a primary drying process. The leaves are then shaped, often using machines, to create the needle-like or “spiderleg” shape. Next comes the sorting process, which separates the leaves into certain grades, and then the final drying. (more)
