Nothing Tastes Better than a Pot of Japanese Sencha
Japanese Sencha tea is widely celebrated by tea enthusiasts for its simple and pure flavour. Literally translated as 'infused tea', it is the most popular tea in Japan (often, Sencha tea is confused for matcha tea, which is made with a green tea powder).
How Best to Enjoy a Cup of Sencha Green Tea
Add one teaspoon and brew in hot water for 1 minute. For the best results, serve in a Japanesekyusuteapot (kyusuteapots can be easily bought online). You can even use a traditional Japanese genmaicha tea set if you have one (including the tea tray and cups). For an extra aesthetic touch, you can have a vase with a single flower in as a simple yet visually satisfying flower arrangement.
If served during afternoon tea, Teavision's sencha pairs well with fresh fruit, which can complement the sweet flavours in the tea. Almonds (in biscuits or pastries) can serve a similar purpose.
However, Sencha green tea isn't just a delicious treat - it also has a number of notable health benefits. A few of these are:
- Giving your immune system a potential boost. Sencha tea contains high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants, which may fortify your immune system's processes. For example, tea in Australia is believed to expedite the production of white blood cells, which can assist in healing infections and illnesses.
- Likewise, Sencha's high vitamin C and antioxidant levels may contribute towards hydrating the skin, helping to give you a healthy natural glow.
- Sencha tea may also support good breath and ongoing oral care. Sencha contains fluorine, which can contribute towards the maintenance of a healthy mouth, fighting germs and eliminating bad breath.

Discovered in the 16th century, Sencha has wafted its way into just about every home and restaurant in Japan. It’s a green tea, made from small-leaf camellia sinensis or Yabukita (particularly in Shizuoka prefecture). Unlike most Chinese green teas, Sencha isn’t fried; the leaves are steamed and left to dry without oxidation, which gives the tea a herby, earthy, almost vegetable flavour.
