Sencha tea has an excellent flavour brought about by being handpicked and the perfect astringent aroma which is produced and enhanced by the mountain ravine geography. Each leaf is specially selected and carefully picked. Tea leaves which are handpicked have a remarkably enhanced flavour that is far superior to leaves which are harvested by machine.
Sencha contains more of the beneficial nutrient catechin than other green teas, because it is grown in full sunlight, thus it becomes yellowish green in colour. Sencha tastes gently astringent and smells wonderfully fresh. Rich in vitamin C, this tea is low in theophylline (a stimulant) and is excellent alone or with meals.
This is the most popular tea in Japan, and represents about 80 percent of the tea produced in Japan. The flavour depends upon the season and place where it is produced, but it is considered that the most delicious sencha is that from the first flush of the year. .
Sencha green tea is made without grinding the tea leaves. It is first slightly steamed to prevent oxidization of the leaves. Then, the leaves are rolled, shaped, and dried. This step creates the customary thin cylindrical shape of the tea. The leaf gets a very fine and fragile structure. Finally, after drying, the leaves are fried to aid in their preservation and to add flavour. .
Sencha in Japan is drunk hot in the cooler months and usually chilled in the summer months.

Its good for 3 infusions off one teaspoon and i drink about 9 cups a day. The tin usually lasts me around a month.
I've purchased some of the Tea Makers of London's other teas and they are all of good quality so are my favourite Tea supplier..and no i don't work for them.
I do not believe the huge difference in price is justified for buying something that may or may not be a little bit fresher.
The tea came sealed in a plastic bag within the tea container, the leaves where intensely green and moist (not dry and dusty)
I am very satisfied with this product and will certainly be buying again from this supplier.
Having said that not bad for everyday use. However will need twice as much as a good quality tea like shinzo. So what is the point might aswell buy the better stuff.
Using 70 degree water and a short steeping time will produce a green coloured tea that is mild and delicate in taste. Using hotter water ups the tannins and catechins and leads to a more pungent taste. Using 70 degree water and steeping for longer produces a more tart (sour) note but without so much bitterness. Play around until you find your own desired taste. I prefer 70deg and about 30 -50 seconds. Not at all like English teas but very pleasant in its own right. After all the Japanese have been drinking (and growing) tea for far longer than us!
