ShiZen Tea's Japanese Sencha Green Tea

Sencha is a type of Japanese green tea that is steamed, rolled, and dried into loose leaf tea. It is a very unique way of making tea that only Japan makes the teas this way. Japanese green tea is harvested maximum 4 times per year during each season and spring tea is considered the highest valued tea in Japan.

We hand select teas from around Japan and the taste does differ depending on the region and how they make the teas. Please see the following chart that summarize the taste difference among our teas.
