“The key point of brewing Sencha is the water temperature and the steeping time.”
Sencha is a tea which has a bracing aroma with sweet and astringent taste. Aftertaste is very refreshing compared to Gyokuro and Matcha. It is the most favored tea in Japan with a wide variety. Mostly, caffeine and astringency will be infused from Sencha in 194 °F (90 °C) and components of the flavor such as theanine will be infused in 158 °F (70 °C). Appropriate water temperature for brewing is 158 °F (70 °C). Higher graded tea tends to have a better balance in its astringency and its sweet flavor of condensed glutamates. Sencha dramatically changes its taste by the water temperature poured to brew.
