Traditionally, Sencha is commonly grown in and sourced from Japan. In Japanese, the word “Sencha” indirectly translates to “first tea,” meaning that the tea is identified by the fact that the green tea leaves are harvested in the first flush, which is thought to produce the best quality. Once picked, the leaves are then steamed, dried and rolled into their typical needle-like shape.
Black Momma ’s Sencha is sourced from Shaoxing County, in the Zhengjiang Province of China. This area is known for its rolling hills and network of rivers. The tea gardens are located just east of the Kuaiji Mountain. The landscape in these tea gardens is at an incline, allowing for natural irrigation and plenty of sun exposure, which is required for the growth of quality Sencha and differentiates the tea from Matcha, which is commonly grown in full shade.
Black Momma ’s Sencha brews light and pure, with the sweet yet astringent flavor profile that is expected of the traditional tea. Black Momma recommends enjoying this blend hot and pure, with Black Momma Flavored Agave
