Additional Information

  • Description
    Go green, with our signature Sencha green tea, selected for its strength, subtle sweetness and rich, refreshing taste. We've sourced our high quality Sencha from China, where the technique of steaming the leaves to stop the oxidation process first originated. A good Sencha will have all the dewy freshness of a bright spring morning and a slightly savoury smoothness - a little like steamed green mange-tout, generously coated in melted butter. Known to be high in antioxidants, green tea has found fame as a cure-all health elixir: reputed to boost weight loss, reduce cholesterol, and combat all sorts of ailments. Far too often, green tea is over-brewed, becoming tannic and bitter. The trick is to brew the tea lightly, allowing the boiled water to cool for about five minutes before pouring. The result is a lush, verdant brew which beats a bowl of broccoli any day.

780

780BC marks the approximate date that Lu Yu wrote his famous Cha Jing, the world’s first book about the art of tea. Covering everything from origin and picking technique to the tea ceremony itself, it was also the first historical record of steaming tea. We thought we’d give our quintessential Sencha the number 780, to celebrate the original tome for teatime reading…

Origin: China

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

Green Tea

Green tea's fresh, verdant taste is down to its processing: the leaves are heated shortly after picking, stopping the oxidation process that would eventually turn them into black tea. Some of the best green teas are found in Japan and China, where the techniques of firing or steaming the leaves have been perfected over many centuries.
