Useful information

What is Sencha?

Sencha is a green tea very popular in Japan. Cultivated in the south of Japan, it comes as bright, intense green leaves that have a characteristic needle-like shape.

 

Accounting for 80% of domestic tea production, Sencha is the most common tea in Japan, and also the most appreciated. Its infusion is transparent, with a golden yellow to intense green colouring.

The origin of Sencha

Sencha tea, unlike Matcha and Gyokuro, is cultivated fully exposed to the sun in long undulating rows. The low-forming tea bushes of a variety of Camellia sinensis, also called Yabukita, are cultivated in a harmonious and orderly manner.

 

Sencha is grown in Japan, particularly in Kirishima, in the south. Kirishima is the ideal place for organic tea cultivation, because it is often foggy, with extreme temperature differences. Such climatic conditions are particularly favourable for Japanese teas.

How is Sencha cultivated?

The time of harvest is very important, with generally three harvests taking place, the first often at the beginning of May, the second at the end of June, and the last at the beginning of August.

 

NaturaleBio’s Sencha tea comes from the very first harvest in late April, and is also called ‘Ichiban-cha’ or ‘Shincha tea’, meaning the freshest tea.

After harvesting, the leaves are steamed for a maximum of 2 minutes to immediately stop oxidation, and preserve all their beneficial properties. Later they are dried inside a machine that gives the leaves their typical needle-like appearance.

Taste & Texture

Our Sencha comes from organic farming. Sencha leaves have a beautiful bright and intense green colour and needle-like shape.

 

Sencha green tea has a very particular refreshing and harmonious flavour that ranges from slightly bitter to sweet. This is thanks to two of its essential components that come into play during the infusion: Theanine and Catechin.

How to consume Sencha?

Sencha tea is low in theine, tea’s form of caffeine, making it perfect for drinking frequently.

 

Sencha tea can be drunk as an infusion, or used in the kitchen as a spice to flavour dishes.

How to prepare Sencha green tea

4 grams

Leaf Quality and Quantity

The quality of the tea depends on its variety and harvest period. Its taste depends on the season and location where it is produced.

 

Shincha, or ‘fresh tea’, comes from the first harvest of the year, and is the most prized, just like NaturaleBio’s Sencha green tea.

 

About 4 grams, or a teaspoon, of tea should be used per person.

 

Preparazione del Tè Sencha

 

70°/80°

Water Temperature

The water should be around 70° to 80°, and not be too hot. The ideal would be wait 3 to 5 minutes after boiling the water.

 

The water temperature is a decisive factor in making a good tea infusion. Indeed, depending on the temperature, the tea can taste very different.

Catechins, which are responsible for astringency, dissolve poorly in water at temperatures below 70 degrees centigrade, and dissolve quickly at 80 degrees and higher.

 

Therefore, the hotter the water, the more bitter the tea. Using warm water, rather than hot water, will make the tea sweeter in taste.

200ml

Water Quantity

The quantity of water used is also important in order to obtain a drink with just the right concentration.

 

The right quantity per 4 grams of Sencha tea is 200 ml of water.

 

Preparazione del Tè Sencha

 

30 seconds

Infusion Time

The infusion time varying according to the type of tea.

 

For this type of tea, the infusion time should be about 30 seconds. Longer and the tea will begin to taste more bitter.

 

When preparing an infusion for several people, you should pour the tea little by little, alternating between cups in order to obtain a similar tasting infusion for everyone.
