Sencha can be considered the "King of Green Teas." Japanese green tea Sencha (煎茶) is by far the most cultivated variety in Japan. Sencha is a classic and delicious green tea, renowned for its fresh and vegetal taste. Cultivated under the sun, its vibrant green leaves are harvested several times a year, each harvest bringing its own nuance of flavors. Enjoyed for its freshness and distinctive character, it's a must-try for green tea enthusiasts.

Sencha contains more catechin, a beneficial nutrient, compared to other green teas because it is grown in full sunlight, giving it a yellow-green color. Sencha has a slightly astringent taste and emits a wonderful freshness. The rich and gentle taste along with the refreshing and delicate aroma of this tea create a fine and generous harmony, offering excellent value for money. To fully enjoy its virtues, it is recommended to let it steep for 2 minutes in water at 75°C.

The green tea from Ujitawara, a renowned region in Japan for producing high-quality teas, offers an exceptional sensory experience. This tea is cultivated under ideal conditions in the heart of the rolling hills of Uji, in the historic city of Kyoto, where the Japanese tradition of green tea began over 1,000 years ago. Today, in Japan, when high-quality green tea is mentioned, Uji comes to mind. The misty climate, sloping hills, warm days, and cool nights provide an ideal setting for the flourishing of tea plants. If you take the train to Kyoto, you will pass through many beautiful green tea plantations in Uji, where you can taste a wide variety of delicious green teas available in specialty shops and restaurants in the region.
