Made from shade-grown fresh spring leaves, sencha is the most commonly consumed type of tea in the world. As one of the most popular teas in Japan, Sencha is known for its freshness, sweetness and astringent aftertaste. Harvested mainly in Uji, Kyoto, sencha has incredible health benefits due to the nutrients and antioxidants contained in the leaves.
Unlike other types of tea, this sencha tea is steamed instead of baked or fired. The steaming process gives it a green colour along with a refreshing taste. Steaming allows the leaves to retain their natural flavour, which can range from bitter to sweet and earthy to nutty.
Let us explore together what makes sencha green tea amazing. Here are some of its health benefits:
Rich in Antioxidants
The streaming process of sencha tea preserves the antioxidant content of the tea leaves, making it healthier than other teas. It is rich in antioxidants that can help to prevent chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes. Plus, it also helps to make you feel more energized throughout the day.
Sencha green tea also contains caffeine, which has been shown to boost metabolism and increase energy levels throughout the day. This means you can enjoy all of these benefits without having to worry about any negative side effects like feeling jittery or anxious after drinking it.
Improves oral health
Do not let your smile be the thing that stops you from enjoying tea. Sencha tea is a great way to maintain dental health as it contains fluoride that can strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. Besides, this type of tea can also help you keep your bad breath away.
