This delicious powdered tea is produced by our dear friends and expert tea farmers at SOTFU. Traditionalists through and through, it is quite unusual for them to offer something new or contemporary. However, the next generation of these tea families is starting to shake things up a bit! This new powdered green tea is representative of the incoming fresh look that the next generation will have on Japanese tea manufacture. And we think that it is a fabulous new form of tea that has many uses!
Tea Trekker’s Powdered Sencha is milled from a blend of 1st pluck spring tea leaves that would traditionally be blended into loose leaf Sencha. This leaf has a fresh, vegetal taste, vigorous flavor, pleasant, persistent astringency, and a deep green color.
It can be stirred into or whisked into water either hot or cold or can be used to prepare a cold beverage using ice. See our Steeping Instructions by expanding its text in the accordions on this page.
While not as particular a cultivar and not as demanding a manufacture as our genuine Matcha from Uji Prefecture, this powdered tea definitely has a ‘place at the table’ for those who need tea that has been been powdered to a fine milling. At half the price of Matcha, it is a legitimate option for those who wish to use powdered green tea for casual tea drinking or everyday use. It can also stand up to the addition of milk or other add-ins such as fruit, for instance when blending breakfast smoothies or lattes. This delicious powdered Sencha will also complement, flavor-wise, other ingredients in recipes that call for Matcha (or simply ‘powdered green tea’) such as cookies, cakes and ice cream.
