What type of tea is it?
Zen Sencha is the king of all green teas. Tombo Tea's is a fukamushi (deep steamed) sencha which is synonymous to the Shizuoka region where our tea estate is based. Being deep steamed results in a finer/powdery leaf structure but don't be fooled this tea when steeped gives a bold and rich flavour compared to the light steamed version. It's higher in antioxidants as more of the leaf is consumed due to the finer leaf structure. This is the most popular type of sencha in the Tokyo region.
How it tastes
Zen is a refreshing green tea that has grassy herbal notes and a bitter sweet characteristic. Our teas have a bright lively green colour unlike some of the yellow murky green teas you can get!
When to drink
This tea can be drunk any time of the day.
