The word "sencha" literally means "steeped tea." Sencha is the most popular type of green tea in Japan, where it is consumed both at home and in public settings such as restaurants and cafes.

The taste of sencha can vary depending on the cultivar (type of Camellia Sinensis plant), the region where it was grown, and the manufacturing process. However, all sencha teas share a fresh, grassy flavor that is unique to green tea.

While most people in Japan drink Yabukita cultivar sencha, there are many other types of senchas that are worth trying. This Single Cultivar sample pack is a great way to explore the variety of senchas available from different regions of Japan. Whether you are a longtime fan of green tea or just beginning to explore this delicious beverage, this pack offers a wonderful opportunity to taste some of the best senchas that Japan has to offer.
