The selected sencha in this set is from Yame, a luxury tea village in Fukuoka prefecture in Japan. It is a type of Japanese ryokucha (green tea) which is prepared by infusing the processed whole tea leaves in hot water. Unlike macha (Powder) which is more ceremonial. Sencha is the most popular tea type in Japan, and it is perfect for anytime in the day, and can be prepared more quickly as well. We could enjoy sencha in both hot and cold !
How to prepare this sencha properly:
Water temperature: 80°C - Infusion: 40 seconds. 4 g (for 1 person) for 25 cl of water
