Some people think that a good cup of Sencha tastes like the ocean. Notes of seaweedy twang and light grassiness. Its a smooth-drinking green tea traditionally grown from Japanese Short-leaf camellia sinenses. Also grown in China as this tea is from making a delicious and nutritious cup of tea. When brewing Sencah, don't overheat the water, steep the leaves to 80-85 degrees for around 20 seconds. A nice short brew really boots the sweet aroma. Longer steeping (up to 90 seconds) can bring out Senchas lingering bitterness and intensify the flavour but like all tea it is down to a persons individual taste.
