Clearspring Organic Japanese Sencha is grown in the luscious rolling hills around Kyoto and Kyushu, areas known for their ideal climatic and soil conditions which produce some of the ﬁnest tea in Japan. The tender young leaves are steamed, rolled and dried immediately after harvesting to ensure freshness and aroma are locked in to bring you an authentic, ﬂavourful Japanese Sencha tea experience.

In the hills around Kyoto, the third generation of the Nagata family use special organic methods, known as Nature Farming, to produce a range of exquisite green teas for Clearspring.
The ancient farming approach used by the Nagatas builds up soil vitality by maintaining a semi-wild environment, where the plants are not overly protected and gain nourishment from repeated applications of compost made from tea clippings and dried leaves, which together with regular mulching helps control weed growth and maintain soil moisture.
Whilst most tea farmers spray their plants with pesticides and herbicides 15-20 times a year, the Nagatas' tea bushes have a vigour that enables them to thrive without chemical inputs.
The Nagatas' yields may be lower than average but their plants have far less mould and blight. They remain productive for up to 40 years, twice as long as the typical tea bush treated with chemicals.
As well as growing tea, the Nagatas undertake the skilful blanching, drying and roasting processes to bring out the unique flavours of each individual blend.
Wonderfully light and smooth tea.
I have the Sencha and Matcha Sencha and I dont know which one kept me awake at night. I think Clearspring should be more transparent about whether these are decaffeinated or not. Please advise
Hi Brenda, thank you for taking the time to leave a review and sorry our sencha teas kept you up. Sencha and Matcha, although not as high caffeine as coffee, are also not known as low caffeine/decaffeinated teas. Our Roasted Green Teas (Hojicha and Kukicha) are very low and therefore better suited for drinking in the evening. Hope this helps.
Probably tried 15 different green teas over th past 5 years , this is now my favourite
Quite simply the best green tea bags you can buy
