One of Japan's most popular natural leaf teas, Sencha Fukujyu Cha is known for its refreshingly sweet and grassy taste.
The farmers in Shizuoka Prefecture often gaze up at Mount Fuji in the distance during their harvest. The saying in their region is, “Heavens above, beauty here.” When the harvest rests, full and green in their granaries, some farmers make pilgrimages of sorts to the granaries and gaze upon their bounty. They have observed the grandeur of the heavens, now they contemplate the beauty of nature’s gifts.
Sencha is a natural leaf tea, meaning that the leaves are un-rolled. Unlike other Japanese green teas, Sencha is grown in full sunlight, and accounts for the largest portion of Japan's tea production. Once picked, the leaves are rushed to the factory for a quick steaming, which seals in the flavor and stops fermentation – this is a key difference between Chinese and Japanese green tea-making processes. The leaves are then fluffed with hot air before pressing. The moisture content for Sencha is only 3%.
