About the tea 


This finest quality Sencha green tea from Ise Bay in Mie Prefecture, Japan is our most revered, award-winning tea. These exquisite Japanese Sencha Tea Triunes were awarded the coveted three-star ranking at Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards as well as an additional star in the 2020 awards. The supreme quality of this exquisite tea is delicately cultivated by our exceptionally talented Japanese tea farmers, whose tea expertise has been passed from generation to generation for over 800 years.

This Japanese Sencha green tea imparts a mellow sweetness, perfectly balanced by a mild and refreshing astringency and delicate umami notes. The fresh sea breeze of the bay area is reflected in the tea’s complex flavour and intoxicating aroma.

Information for tea connoisseurs


Sencha green tea is the most popular tea in Japan, representing about 80 percent of Japanese tea production. The Japanese enjoy Sencha hot in the cooler months of winter and chilled during the hot months of summer.
The Teamakers of London work very closely with our Japanese tea farmers to ensure that only the most exceptional and high-quality tea leaves end up in your teacup. Sencha is grown in full sunlight and is delicately handpicked by skilled tea farmers. When producing Japanese Sencha green tea, the leaves are not ground as with other teas.  It is slightly steamed to prevent oxidization of the leaves. Then, the leaves are rolled, shaped, and dried. This step creates the customary, thin and cylindrical shape of the tea leaf which has a very fine and fragile structure. Finally, after drying, the leaves are fried to aid in their preservation and to add flavour.

Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
