Product Description

Size Name:125g Caddy

Product Description

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.

This is by far my favourite Sencha and i drink it daily. Its of such a quality that i don't bother using an infuser, i just pop a teaspoon of leaves into a cup and fill with hot water, wait a couple of minutes and the leaves float to the bottom, then drink. I can't do this with most of the other Senchas that i've tried as they contain too many stems...this one is mainly leaf.

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 purchased this tea caddy because I wanted an alternative to bags which tend to run out much faster and also tend to be lesser quality. This is exactly what I needed! Great tasting, not too strong, not too weak, and still full of healthiness! Use with a standard tea strainer or strainer pot and you're sorted! I've been having cups of it a day for over a month at least now and I'm not even halfway through. If you're after healthy tea and lots of it, this is the perfect choice.

I purchased a variety of Tea Makers caddy's for the family following a request that we use fresh leaf tea as an alternative to tea bags which can often be quite bland. The general consensus among the family is that they much prefer this loose leaf tea, finding it far more refreshing and, of course, healthier than any other which they've previously tried. As big fans of both fruit and herbal blends, we're well acquainted with some of the more subtle varieties that can be purchased and we found that the flavour of this one was just perfect for everyones taste - not too strong, not too weak, and by using separate tea infusers for each cup, we were able to judge the strength perfectly for each person rather than everyone having to have it the same. Because we'd purchased a few in one go, the tea lasted some time as we were alternating between them. However, despite being in the cupboard for a couple of months, it remained as fresh as the day we purchased it and, once finally finished, the caddy could be re-used as were able to purchase the leaf tea in bags from the supplier in order to refill the caddy's. Absolutely perfect. Would I go back to ordinary leaf tea bags? No way, this brand is the way forward for us. Would I recommend to others? Absolutely. You can't go wrong with this flavour or brand and we'll definitely be buying more when we run out again.

You will pay a small fortune for this quality tea, if you buy it from one of the specialist tea suppliers on line.
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.

Yes its loose leaf tea, yes there will be a mess to clear up when you've finished with it but it's worth it. This tea is an excellant blend with none of the bitterness or saltiness of some blends. Pour the water into your tea pot just before it boils and leave for 2 mins, strain as you pour and you will have a smooth tasting cup of tea with a pleasant bouquet

I really enjoy this tea. But probably due to the careless handling during the transportation, the tea leaves were smashed a lot, hence the tea soup could be murky. And you have to wait for a moment to have clearer tea to drink. Except for that, this is some great tea. I bought the 1 kg package one. I will buy it again.

Good packaging and decent price. However the tea itself lacks freshness. A good sencha should be a little moist and have a fresh grassy smell. As an experienced sencha drinker this lacks freshness and is very dry as it has no smell. This implies the tea is rather old.

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.

A good tea, nice and refreshing, with a bitter tannin taste that can be adjusted by varying the steeping time and water temperature.
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!
