Description

Sencha is Japan's absolute most popular tea, it is characteristically known for its delicate sweetness and mild astringency. "Tenkaichi" in Japanese means "#1 under the sun", or "the best", ours is organic and premium. Sencha refers to the first picking of the season- around February in milder climates. Our Sencha Tenkaichi is organically produced, and of highest quality. Its infusion produces a wonderful sweet, buttery, grassy, slight vegetal flavor, and a pale, yet bright green grassy liquor. Only slightly astringent, our sencha has a rich buttery taste that remains lasts for multiple steeps. Try one of Japan's most famous teas in our luxury grade organic Sencha Tenkaichi!

This tea was my recent reintroduction to green teas, I was a bit skeptical since green teas didn't usually taste too great, bitter, but this was amazing, completely opposite of what I expected. Ensure you get the right temp, if you pour boiling water on it, it won't be the same. I love it and ordered it again. I drink it to wake up in the morning since I am extremely sensitive to coffee so teas are life for me :)

Very good.
Heaped dessert spoon of leaf, 340ml soft water, 60 degrees celsius, 140 seconds, brewed in Japanese clay (unglazed).
Smooth and clean with just the right balance of lemon verbena bitterness, oceanic roundness and victoria sponge / coconut sponge sweetness.
Whoever invented tea deserves a prize. If I was told I was only allowed one drink other than water for the rest of my life it would be green tea.

When I travel internationally, I search asian street markets until I find quality tea. It can be a lot of work. I have enjoyed the best teas in the world. Then , once stateside, I can't find a consistent high quality tea merchant. So when I'm asia, I buy a year's supply.

Well, every tea I have purchased from Tealyra is high quality. Clearly, Tealyra has very high standards and they hold their suppliers to very high standards. Thanks Tealyra!

This Sencha is sweet, soft on the tongue without astringency. Quality tea.

Very little astringency to this sencha. It is full-bodied with a strong nutty flavour. A good tea for a cold rainy day!
