Sencha Green Tea Powder from Uji, Kyoto
What’s the difference between Sencha and Matcha?
The answer is very simple. The tea leaves themselves are grown in different ways.
Matcha is made from ‘Tencha’. Tencha is the tea leaves that are covered under a shade in order to prevent from sunshine for more than 20 days before the harvest in order to make the tea leaves much greener in color.
Sencha Powder has More Healthy Benefits Than Matcha Powder!
Covering tea leaves from sunlight makes the leaves greener and more flavorful, but it prevents tea leaves to increase Catechin, which is a very beneficial ingredient for our body.
Sencha has more antioxidants (Catechin / EGCG) than Matcha. Catechin is what is believed to be responsible for green tea health benefits. Sencha green tea leaves get more sun exposure, which increases Catechin in the tea leaves.
Our Sencha Powder is 100% Organic!
Sencha powder allows you to consume the whole tea leaf when you drink the tea. So ‘being organic’ is a very important factor when drinking. The dark-green colored fine powder has fresh grassy scent. Tea made with Sencha powder has dark, or somewhat yellowish green color.
You can use this sencha powder for smoothies, sweets and so on.
