This is a wonderful first flush tea that contains specially selected younger leaves which are picked when they first show signs of budding. The younger the tea leaves, the more ‘umami’ and vitamin C they contain. To enjoy the special taste of a first flush tea, it is important to make the tea with water that has cooled slightly after boiling (80°C). Sasaki Seicha tea company is located in Shizuoka Prefecture, which is famous for good quality green tea. Their sencha products have been awarded various prizes many times.

Sencha is the most common variety of Japanese tea and accounts for approximately 80% of the tea produced in Japan. Sencha has a greenish, golden colour and can be enjoyed hot or cold. Sencha is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols which help prevent cancer, keep the heart healthy and aid general well-being. Check out our incredible variety of tea bags, loose teas and ready-to-drink teas in our tea section to see what we have in store.

My main tea is this product. The Japanese teas are not bitter. They are full of flavour. I started drinking it after having cancer 11 years ago. I also have a severe gastric problem and am unable to drink coffee or conventional tea or alcohol. So this is my hourly fix. I bulk buy so that I never run out using the cup filter which goes with me where ever I go.
Thank you
Drink this tea every mirning
As I said before, I use this product according ot the instructions on the packaging. In addition, I found that re-steeping this tea is definitely possible, at least once if not twice. Also, I use this tea lose in a pot and would not recommend putting it in a tea bag as this takes away the flavour
V high quality
It’s fabulous.
Good Saturday morning rescue. Three successive cups from the same brew at 75 centigrade. Delicious and revitalising.
