Sencha Overture in bulk available for wholesale. Green tea from the Shizuoka region of Japan. Sencha translates as 'common,' but there is nothing ordinary about this exquisite 'spider leg' tea. The latter refers to the leaves' long, slender shape. Our 'Sencha Overture' is a wonderfully delicate second flush (summer) tea whose soothing taste and fresh green scent make it a perfect everyday treat.
This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 165° for 2-3 minutes.
An overture is an instrumental opening for shows like ballets, operas, and musicals. Starting in the 17th century, they carried all the way through to the popular movie musicals of the 1950s and beyond. While some overtures are composed as stand-alone pieces, they can also be used to introduce themes, melodies, or dramatic elements of the piece that will follow. Such is the case with our Sencha Overture. Take a sip, and you'll have a delicious preview of all the good things to come.
