As Japan's most popular tea, it’s no surprise that there is an art dedicated to enjoying Sencha Tea. Lighter than most other green teas, it’s known for its refreshing summer aroma and a flavour that is vegetal, grassy and green.

What Does Sencha Tea Taste Like?

Fresh, herbal, grassy flavour. With vegetable notes like kale, Brussels sprouts and spinach. May have an astringent taste that typically evolves from sour to sweet to savoury.

How to Brew Sencha Tea

Steep 5g tea leaves in 80°C (barely started to simmer) water for 2 minutes. You can choose to top off your tea with a small amount of piping hot water, and enjoy.

Take note!: Sencha tea requires a lower brewing temperature and shorter brewing time than most teas. The tea can taste bitter if it is steeped for too long or at too high of a temperature — which overshadows its fresh qualities.

About Shinrinyoku

We believe in the healing powers of nature. And we wish to convey this through our teas.

behind the name

Shinrinyoku is a combination of two Japanese words: shinrin (forest) and yoku (bathe).

Finding calm and quiet amongst the trees, observing nature around you whilst breathing deeply, you let go of stress and boost your well-being in a natural way.

Why Tea?

We believe that it’s important to take a few minutes each day to settle your mind and find your centre. What better way to do it than with a cup of quality artisanal tea.
