The Sencha Supreme Green Tea Experience: Exquisite
This first flush steamed green tea is full of nuanced flavors that offer a hint as to where it is grown—in fertile soil rich with minerals and surrounded by the sea. Notes of seaweed and grass take the lead in our classic steamed green tea.
Tasting Notes: Rich, Vegetal, Complex
The dark, blue-green leaves of our Sencha Supreme are tightly compressed into needle-like shapes. The long, flat leaves are rich in aromas, emitting bold scents of seaweed and spinach. The golden-green infusion offers a smooth brew. It’s complex yet clear with grassy, vegetal flavors coming forward. A multi-faceted sweetness that lingers on the palate. In each sip, you'll also find a flavor known in Japan as umami—a satisfying, brothy richness.
Premium green tea provides a natural way to take in more antioxidants, including powerful EGCG, into your daily diet. The antioxidants in green tea fight harmful free radicals in your body and may help provide a defense against aging.

To unlock the natural sweetness of Sencha Supreme, be sure to err on the side of short and cool when brewing it. If it tastes bitter to you, you've brewed it too long, brewed it too hot or used too many leaves. Take a deep breath and try again—your taste buds will thank you!
Most Chinese green teas are heated in a wok-like vessel or an oven-like heater to stop them from turning brown like a black tea. However, in Japan, and South Korea most teas are steamed to halt "oxidation" (the same natural process that turns an apple brown after you slice it). Sencha is steamed during its processing. This step gives it a fresher, more oceanic taste than other green teas.
