Sencha Kyoto Full-Leaf
Choose Your Variety
Sencha Kyoto Full-Leaf Loose Green Tea is grown in the Uji region which is famous for producing Japan’s most exclusive green teas. This blend of first and second flush leaves resemble pine needles and steep into a clear, verdant green cup. The flavor is clean and robust with a vegetal top note. Perfect with savory foods.
Green tea contains less than a quarter the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping green tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water just short of boiling. Then pour water over tea and steep for 1-3 minutes (if using a tea bag) or 2-4 minutes (if using full-leaf tea.)
Finest Japanese Sencha tea leaves
What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Love this tea
I fell in love with Sencha tea after having it at a sushi bar. The taste of Republic of Tea's sencha is wonderful, earthy and flavorful. I wish they would make it in a tea bag.
Sencha Kyoto tastes intriguingly deep green and, for my needs, gives exactly the right amount of brisk yet mellow caffeine. After savoring many other green teas, I've decided that this is my favorite one.
Finally a REAL JAPANESE TEA!
A good quality, real Japanese green tea is so rare to find outside of Japan (I should know, my mom is Japanese and I lived there for several years). But this sencha has fulfilled that void for me. Beautiful green color, vibrant and vegetal. Perfection.
