  • Details

    The Sencha Japanese Tea blend from English Tea Store is a very popular light smooth green tea from Japan. With tending light liquoring, this blend is smooth with reasonable depth and body. This tea is often used in Japanese tea ceremonies.

    Arguably one of the world's most popular green teas. While Sencha, by tradition a Japanese tea variety, green tea originated in China and found its way to the island nation via traveling monks in ancient times. In 1740, a Kyoto tea master named Soen Nagatani developed the method of steam processing green leaf, resulting in a very fresh, flavorful cup and Sencha was born. Nagatani's tea quickly took hold, evolving to become a daily drinker, favored by the common populace, as opposed to the more ceremonial varieties of matcha favored by the wealthy.

    How to Make Tea

    Available in 3 sizes (Please select from the options above):

    • First time trying English Tea Store's Japanese Sencha Green Loose Leaf Tea?

      Try our Sample Size of 1 ounce.
    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 4 ounces
    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 16 ounces (1 pound)

    Japanese Sencha Green Tea is gluten free, as well as nuts, wheat, crustacea, eggs, milk/dairy, sulfites, and soy lecithin free. This tea is packed at a factory that has nuts on the premises.

    Caffeine content: Low - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of green tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 22 to 29 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 - 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

    Antioxidant Content: High - 7.5 - 9.99% polyphenols by dry weight. The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

    Nutritional Information: Amount per Serving; Serving size 2.5 grams of loose tea. Makes 8 fluid ounces or 240 milliliters.

      bad quality tea

      Posted by James Lee on Oct 30th 2018

      Ordered this tea 16 oz, received it in 4 days, service is good, price is ok, but its quality is bad---not in whole leaf, but in debris or smashed, the tea made with it is cloudy and not clear, seems some tiny dust in the cup bottom.

      Good flavor. I enjoy mixing this with other herbal teas in the morning. I started drinking this green tea years ago to help boost my immune system. I still enjoy it often.

      PERFECTION

      Posted by DCKitty on Feb 21st 2018

      Being new to drinking hot tea and having discovered the proper way to brew tea (tea pot, tea kettle, cozy, water temperature, etc.), I was looking for wonderful teas akin to what I had drank when I visited England last spring. I'd only had teas from the local grocery store and hated the bitterness of them. I poured over this site and settled on this Sencha green tea, a peppermint tea, and the English Garden Party tea. I have not been disappointed with any of them. This Sencha is so incredibly smooth and resembles nothing of the inferior teas from the grocery store. It is smooth, delicate, and steeps beautifully. I mixed the Sencha and the peppermint tea together this evening to soothe my throat and sinues...again...perfection. There is zero evidence of bitter tannin flavor; something that was turning me off of hot tea before this. You won't go wrong with this tea.
