TIPS FOR A GOOD CUP OF SENCHA EVERY TIME
Don’t shake, mix or stir while brewing
It is better if you don’t use an infuser. Loose sencha leaves make contact with water as they move more freely, which results in a richer infusion.
If your water does not taste good, then your sencha will also not taste good. Therefore, make sure to use fresh and good-quality water which doesn’t contain lots of minerals. If you’re using tap water, then allow it to run cold for at least ten seconds before using it.
Don’t use a kettle made of aluminum. Aluminum is a very reactive material and can result in toxic contamination of the water. Ceramic, glass, stainless steel, cast iron, enamel or marble are non-reactive and non-toxic materials.
Happy brewing and enjoy your cup of sencha green tea.
