Matcha 101

Green tea for all; at Sencha Naturals, we're all about ease and accessibility when it comes to matcha green tea - that’s why we've placed it at the center of everything we create from lattes, mints, and immune support, to just a really good cup of tea.
Just like people, different teas have different personalities- but all come from the same plant, the Camellia sinensis. It's the way the leaves are fried, dried, steamed, toasted, or withered that give way to countless variations. Here’s a few basics to help you get a little friendlier with our favorite green.
