Product Description

Clearspring Organic Japanese Matcha Sencha loose leaf tea is a harmonious blend of Japanese Sencha, married with distinctly rich and exquisite ceremonial-grade Matcha. Using only the finest Organic green tea leaves, it delivers the perfect balance of flavours, being uplifting and soothing and perfect for any time of the day.

Matcha is finely ground green tea leaf powder and is the most prized amongst Japanese teas. It has been drunk as part of the tea ceremony for 900 years as well as by Buddhist monks during long days of meditation.

This very concentrated form of green tea is drunk as a fine powder diffused in liquid so you actually ingest the whole leaf, consuming every last bit of goodness.

How is it made?

Clearspring Matcha Sencha tea is a delicate and delicious combination of two of Japan’s most popular beverages; sencha and matcha. Sencha is the most popular green tea in Japan. Our Organic Sencha is made from green tea leaves that are cultivated in direct sunlight and are harvested in the first flush of the tea harvest, considered the best quality leaves for a finer tasting Sencha tea. Once the leaves are picked, they go through the traditional Japanese practice, not usually found elsewhere, of steaming, rolling and drying the green tea leaves immediately after picking. This is known as the ‘sencha process’, which takes place within 24 hours of harvesting. It inhibits the enzyme activity that causes oxidisation and enables the tea to retain its bright emerald green leaf colour and preserve its nutritional properties and delicious flavour. The sencha is then combined with finely milled, vibrant, shade-grown organic matcha from Uji, a region high in the hills around Kyoto, renowned for producing the best Japanese teas. Together, our premium Organic Matcha Sencha tea is delicious and is both uplifting and soothing.
