Sencha is a steamed green tea made from small-leaf Camellia Sinensis (tea bushes), after picking, the processing of Sencha green tea starts with a quick team of the fresh tea leaves, preventing oxidization and locking in the green color and flavor, the leaves are then rolled, shaped, and dried. After the plant grows, they are harvested in the first or second flush, with the first harvest being the best quality Sencha. This first flush is known as Sencha. Also, the leaves from the upper shoots are most often picked because they are the youngest leaves and are therefore higher quality.
