Description

Our Sencha Kakagawa is a classic steamed green tea manufactured in China to Japanese specifications. Since the Fukushima incident some traditional Japanese tea farmers have established tea estates in China's Zhejiang province which are operated to the strict methods and practices found in Japan. Traditionally the leaves are left in the cup and more water added until the flavour has gone. When drunk the leaf pattern at the bottom of the cup was often used to foretell ones fortune.

Grade- Sencha – Made to Japanese Specifications

Ingredients- Chinese Green Tea

Brewing Guide- We would recommend using just a teaspoon (5g) of the leaf per cup. Use freshly boiled water that has been let to cool for a couple of minuets to a temperature of roughly 80-90 degrees. Leave the tea to brew for no more than 2 minuets as it can over brew quickly and become bitter.

How to Serve- Best served as it is. Depending on taste, you can add lemon and/or honey.

Tasting Notes- A light, smooth infusion with a delicate body.

Colour in Cup- A pale yellow green in colour.

Pack sizes available- 50g, 125g, 250g, 500g, 1 Kilo. ( We pack everything fresh to order, nothing is off the shelf ! ). We pack all our teas in a unique material which combines card and foil, regarded as the best for retaining freshness and quality.

    Wide range of loose green tea, I try various types, some better than others, but wonderful to have this range available. My recent purchase is good but I am still trying to find an excellent green tea which I purchased a few months ago but I've forgotten the name. All round excellent service and choice
