Our Chinese Sencha stands as a testament to the artistry of green tea production, offering a crisp, light, and utterly refreshing experience with every sip.

Derived from the renowned Sencha tradition, this green tea undergoes a meticulous steaming process, a technique that imbues the leaves with elevated levels of vitamins and antioxidants, distinguishing it among its counterparts.

Selected from only the finest whole tea leaves, our Sencha exudes a vibrant green hue indicative of its freshness and quality. With each infusion, it releases invigorating vegetal aromas and a distinctively crisp flavour profile that enlivens the senses.

As the strongest contender in our green tea line-up, our Sencha is a must-have for aficionados seeking an authentic and robust green tea experience.

Available in our iconic damask caddies or in our innovative loose-leaf pyramid teabags, packaged to ensure optimal freshness, our Chinese Sencha promises to elevate your tea-drinking ritual to new heights of satisfaction.

Chinese Sencha is also included in the following signature gift collections:



Sencha is one of China’s most popular teas and has been commonly consumed since ancient times; it is also fairly unique amongst Chinese teas for how it is produced.

All green teas require a short, sharp application of heat in order to “fix” the leaves and prevent them oxidising. Pan-firing is the most widespread method for fixing leaves and the majority of Chinese tea types employ this method.

Sencha differs because it is fixed by steaming instead of pan-firing and this serves to lock in more of the crisp, herbaceous and vegetal characteristics of the leaf resulting in a very distinctive infusion and the famous “green tea” flavour for which it is particularly known.

Sencha teas are also created from the earliest flushes of the season, with the younger leaves generally producing sweeter liquors and later flushes being somewhat more savoury or astringent. These first flushes are also very climate-sensitive and so distinctly different flavours can be produces by different areas and regions.

Whilst Sencha is reverred in China for its crisp, refreshing and energising brews, in the West Sencha is more famous as a “health tea”. The reason for this is that the steaming process locks in more vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants than pan-firing. This results in Sencha teas being amongst the highest in anti-oxidant levels, particularly polyphenol antioxidants which have been linked with neutralising free radicals in body and improving cardiovascular activity, metabolism, blood sugar management and even having anti-aging properties!

Preparation Instructions

Place one teaspoon per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Switch the kettle off, before it boils, when you hear the water rumbling. Add the hot, but not boiling, water and infuse for 3 minutes. Serve immediately or remove leaves to prevent spoiling.


The secret of Chinese Sencha lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallo-catechin gallate (EGCG) - one of the most powerful polyphenols (natural antioxidants) found in green tea.

 EGCG has also been reported as effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the formation of abnormal blood clots (thrombosis); considered among the leading causes of heart attacks and strokes.

Other health benefits indicated through scientific study include :

Helping to prevent tooth decay and reduce bacteria that causes halitosis (through naturally occurring fluoride) 

A reduced risk of several cancers - skin, breast, lung, colon, oesophageal, and bladder.

About Chinese Sencha

Chinese Sencha is a delightful green tea that offers a fresh and invigorating drinking experience, originating from the lush tea gardens of China's Jiangsu province.

This tea is characterised by its vibrant green leaves and its mild, subtly sweet flavour profile. Unlike traditional Japanese Sencha, which is steamed, Chinese Sencha is typically pan-fired, resulting in a slightly different taste and aroma.

Chinese Sencha boasts a delicate balance of grassy, vegetal notes with a hint of sweetness, making it a refreshing and uplifting beverage. Its smooth and clean taste is complemented by a subtle umami undertone, creating a well-rounded and satisfying cup of tea.

With its bright green liquor and refreshing taste, Chinese Sencha is the perfect choice for those seeking a revitalizing pick-me-up throughout the day. Whether enjoyed hot or cold, its gentle flavour and soothing qualities make it a beloved staple in tea culture.

In addition to its delightful taste, Chinese Sencha may offer potential health benefits associated with green tea, including antioxidants that support overall health and well-being. Regular consumption of green tea has been linked to various health benefits, including improved heart health, boosted metabolism, and enhanced cognitive function.

Experience the pure essence of green tea with Chinese Sencha, and allow yourself to be transported to the tranquil tea gardens of China with every sip.
