Sencha tea means roasted tea. Now in modern days, Sencha tea is steamed to prevent oxidation of the leaf.

This Japanese-style Decaf Sencha is tightly rolled into needle-shaped leaves.

Decaffeination Process

This traditional Japanese green tea is decaffeinated using a C02 process that does not detract from the tea's health benefits,

Where it is grown

Japanese Decaf Sencha is grown in the Zhejiang Province located in the West Lake Region of China.

As the leading producer of tea, Zhejiang is well-known for producing teas such as Gunpowder, Mei Longjing, and green leaf-scented Jasmine. The base for all of these teas is a China Green "Sencha-style" leaf.

Flavor

It has a perfect balance of sweetness and astringency, and a clean finish. Like most Japanese tea, the flavor is reminiscent of seaweed, or a grassy flavor because of its vegetal notes.
