What is Sencha Green Tea?
Sencha green tea is the most popular variety of green tea in Japan and accounts for over 60% of all tea production. Sencha originated in China, but it has remained popular around the world. Though sencha is still produced in China, there’s a wide range of flavors and cultivars. Sencha from Japan has a more verdant, leafy taste with a light nutty aroma that pairs well with savory dishes and sweets alike. Regardless of which type you choose, all sencha green teas still offer an abundance of fresh flavor, a burst of caffeination, and all kinds of health-related benefits.
How is Sencha Green Tea Produced?
While some teas are made from the same plants by simply picking them, sencha is unique in that it’s processed after they’re grown. Sencha is most popular with Japanese consumers and consists of long, thin leaves that are steamed after being picked. The top producers of sencha green tea in Japan include Shizuoka, Kagoshima, and Miyazaki.
It varies from other green teas because it’s created from Camellia sinensis plant leaves that are cultivated and grown in direct sunlight.Sencha is harvested during the spring, summer, and fall seasons depending on when it’s harvested best for its aroma, quality, and flavor.
Sencha typically features long thin leaves but can also be found in a rough version called aracha which includes stems that usually are removed before packaging and selling. If you’re looking for a smooth sensation, sencha makes an excellent choice because it has a light taste without the bitterness of bancha green tea which is created from the bottom portion of Camellia sinensis plant leaves after they’ve finished growing.
