SENCHA: THE TASTE OF JAPANESE TRADITION
Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan and it is also the most famous green tea in the world. Its infusion has a mildly sweet and very refreshing flavour, with buttery, grassy notes and green-gold colour. The word „sencha” literally means „brewed over low heat” and it refers to the typical brewing of leaf tea that involves pouring hot water over dry leaves. This tea releases its best flavour when brewed with soft water with low pH. Moya Sencha no. 21 is organically cultivated on the island of Kyushu.
Sencha is recommended as a morning drink, since its early-picked leaves have an extremely high level of stimulating caffeine and sencha is known to speed up metabolism. Just like other Japanese green teas, it is not only a rich source of catechins but also one of most powerful natural antioxidants. Drinking sencha helps in slowing down the ageing processes, getting rid of toxins, reducing bad cholesterol, keeping sugar levels in check and improving dental health. Its leaves contain easily absorbable vitamin C, beta carotene, folic acid, potassium, calcium and phosphorus. Just like matcha tea, sencha is a well-known mood-booster.
