Unique among Japanese sencha, the leaves of this style are steamed and then gently pan-fried to bring out toasted qualities, similar to Chinese style teas. This method of tea production was brought to Japan from China and was the original technique used to produce tea. The Japanese then put their twist on the flavor by steaming. We call this the yin yang of green teas. Bright and nutty mixed with vegetal sweetness!
