Special green tea Japanese Sencha produced accordingly to the Japanese tradition from tealeaves of the first flush perfectly reflects exquisite simplicity and harmony of Japanese culture.
About type of teaJapan is a country of paradoxes. Japanese culture includes things and concepts that are mutually exclusive for the European mind. For example, Japanese own thousand-year old customs go hand in hand with surprising ability to adopt, assimilate and develop traditions of other people. Emphatic politeness and belligerence of the samurai sword, rapid development of high technologies and aspiration for inner peace through contemplation of calmness and splendour of nature – these are characteristic features of Japan. Yet, Japanese culture is famous for the grace of all its elements – be it poetry, clothes, furniture or traditional green tea. Tea ceremony, art of ikebana, poetry and contemplation of nature are united in one and single whole – the fine arts of leisure.
Sencha tea is an essential part of this fine arts of leisure culture. Technology of sencha production is a peculiar page in the Japanese tea culture. For several days before plucking tea bushes are shaded with cane or bamboo covers to increase the aroma intensity. Then tea leaves are treated with steam and slightly flattened. Appearance of sencha is similar to sharp green needles. Insular location of the plantations, special climate conditions and soil composition – all contribute to the original flavour of this tea that gives us a chance to enjoy special “buttery” flavour and fine aroma of sea breeze. At first the bouquet may seem a bit too complex for European taste but cup by cup Japanese sencha will reveal to you all depths of refined simplicity and harmony.
