Clearspring Organic Japanese Tea, Sencha
Organic Japanese Sencha
This light and refreshing tea is prepared in Kyoto from the season's first tender young leaves harvested at their peak of flavour in late spring. The leaves are briefly steam, rolled and cooled by the special Japanese Sencha process. Then immediately packed to seal in their fresh taste and aroma.
We are delighted to announce that this organic Sencha tea has won a ‘Highly Commended’ award and has been ‘Commended By Consumers’ in Organic Food Awards 2012. Fantastic recognition of the high quality and great taste of this product and an excellent platform from which to launch our new organic Sencha blend range.
The traditional Japanese practice, not usually found elsewhere, of steaming green tea leaves immediately after picking preserves their unique properties. This steaming, sometimes referred to as the Sencha process, takes place within 24 hours of harvesting and inhibits the enzyme activity that causes oxidisation, enabling the tea to retain its bright emerald green leaf colour and preserving its nutritional benefits
