Sometimes, the finest things in life come full circle. So it is with Sencha, arguably one of the world’s most popular green teas. While Sencha is by tradition a Japanese tea variety, green tea originated in China and found its way to the island nation via traveling monks in ancient times. In 1740 a Kyoto tea master named Soen Nagatani, developed the method of steam processing green leaf, resulting in a very fresh, flavorful cup and thus, Sencha was born.
