Sencha is a steamed green tea made from small-leaf Camellia sinensis (tea bushes). Japanese sencha tends to have a refreshing flavor that can be described as vegetal, green, seaweedy, or grassy. Flavors vary with different types of sencha and how they are brewed.

How to brew it
The most popular tea in Japan, sencha is a green tea with fresh, green color and taste. It is a whole-leaf tea that can be enjoyed hot or cold and makes up over half of Japan's yearly tea harvest. Brewing for too long and/or at too high of a temperature can give sencha tea a bitter flavor, overshadowing its fresh qualities.
Serve it with a lemon caka e to enhance the taste.
