Sencha is the most popular Green Tea in Japan. The fresh tea is steamed quickly to stop the fermentation, then the leaves are rolled, shaped, and dried. The finished tea has rounded tips and a bright green color. Sencha is often prepared in a Kyusu-style teapot, and the glistening green infusions are savory, sweet, and pleasantly vegetal.
