Sencha green tea goes through a longer steaming process, allowing the natural flavors and colors to imbue the tea leaves. Although the steaming process decreases the tea’s aroma, it cuts the astringency to create a richer and more full-bodied flavor compared to regular Sencha. The difference in the process leads to a unique blend of a cultural favorite.
Bring the water to a boil and allow it to cool to 176°F (80°C). Steep 1 heaping teaspoon (3 grams) of Deep Steam Sencha for 30 seconds to 1 minute in 1 cup (8 oz / 240 ml) of hot water.
