Sencha green tea is the most popular green tea in Japan. Sencha can be classified into many grades in terms of quality. While average grade Sencha is drunk at home and served with meals at restaurants, high grade Sencha is often served on special occasions in Japan.
To make delicious Sencha, prepare boiled hot water, and then wait till it cools down to about 70°C. In the meantime place Sencha leaves in a teapot, and then pour the hot water into the pot and steep for 1.5 minutes. Finally, pour Sencha tea into cups to the last drop.
Genmaicha tea is a mixture of green tea leaves and roasted rice. It is popular among tea lovers because of the combination of its grassy flavor of green tea and nutty flavor of roasted rice.
