Organic Sencha with Matcha
Our Sencha with Matcha is combination of organically grown sencha and matcha from Kagoshima, Japan. It is a blend of chumushi (medium-steamed) sencha with a matcha of blend made of several cultivars to produce a sweet, umami flavor. It has a very fresh, green taste, without being overly vegetal. There is a slightly nutty flavor from the finish of the sencha that further boosts the perception of sweetness. The matcha gives the sencha a more energizing quality.
In a kyusu or 400ml glass teapot, steep one gram of tea per ounce of water. Use 160°F water and steep 75 seconds. Steep a second infusion for another 45 seconds.
