Good and Proper is delighted to share with you their new “Sencha”. Unlike most Senchas, which are grown in full sun, this particular one is shaded for 18 days before plucking, making it more akin to a Gyokuro — a type of steamed green tea widely considered to be Japan’s finest. This unique shading process brings out the tea’s rich, characteristic umami flavour, as well as more sweetness. The dark, silky leaves produce a vibrant green cup with a fresh, spring-like aroma and a smooth, delicately sweet finish.
