From Stratford Tea Leaves

Origin: Shizuoka, Japan

Sencha with Matcha represents the harmony between the old and the new: matcha powder and fresh sencha. This blended tea provides matcha’s sweetness with the first cup and sencha’s fresh flavour with the second cup. Multiple infusions.

Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan, accounting for almost 80% of the tea consumed. The top part of tea leaves and buds are used to produce sencha. It is grown in full sunlight and is processed in multiple stages: sifting, cutting, roasting and often blending. Sencha is noted for its delicate sweetness, mild astringency and flowery-green aroma.

Matcha powder green tea is famed for the Tea Ceremony. Tea bushes are carefully grown under the shade for about one month prior to spring harvesting in order to protect them from sunlight. This brings out an extraordinary sweet taste with no bitterness. The manufactured tencha leaves are slowly ground to produce a fine green powder. Matcha has a wonderful aroma, silky froth, and rich mellow taste. Extremely high in antioxidants.

I pined for the “tea of the month”-type deal from Stratford Tea Leaves for months and dropped enough clear hints that the boyfriend was lovely enough to buy it for me for my birthday. I had to wait another month before it finally arrived (ugh postal strike!), but here it is!

I waited till I had time to enjoy the first two teas to get down to it, and I’m starting with this one.

The dry leaf smelled delightfully buttery and sweet. The first infusion was really strikingly bright-green from the clearly fresh matcha. It was rich and a little bitter (I think my water was too hot). The second and third infusions are a light, sweet, slightly astringent sencha.
