Sencha Premium (100g)

18.95 14.95

Sencha contains more of the beneficial nutrient Catechin than other green teas as it’s grown in full sunlight, becoming yellowish green in colour.

Ensuring we use only the young leaf sprouts that are small and soft and not fully-grown gives our Sencha a wonderful fresh aroma, with a gently astringent taste.

A very mellow and refreshing cup of tea experience.

All YOI teas can be brewed three times with full flavour.


Sencha contains more of the beneficial nutrient catechin than other green teas, because it is grown in full sunlight, thus it becomes yellowish green in colour. Sencha tastes gently astringent and smells wonderfully fresh.

Using only the young leaf sprouts of spring ensures our Sencha Premium’s aroma and taste is much more mellow and refreshing. These young leaves are difficult to find even in Ichibancha (the first pick of the year). Although generally the best time to gather tea leaves is when the tea tree has five sprouts, our Sencha Premium’s tea leaves are gathered when the tea tree has only three sprouts. It is said that because the sprouts are younger the tea is of premium quality.

Finished in the traditional Uji/Kyoto style.
