Technically speaking, Sencha is grown in full sun, but this tea is shaded for 18 days before plucking. This makes it more like a Gyokuro, a style of steamed green tea widely considered to be Japan’s finest.
This unique kabuseru process brings out a rich umami flavour, as well as a lingering sweetness.
- 40g makes 20 cups based on two infusions, but you can reinfuse up to three times
Good & Proper Tea will show you how good tea can be when done properly. They start by sourcing and curating a collection of award-winning, single-origin teas & herbal infusions from around the world. They then share their knowledge and experience to make sure each is brewed to bring out the best possible flavour.
As a team of passionate brewers, blenders, curators, and – perhaps most importantly – drinkers of delicious tea, they get excited about getting others excited about tea.
What founder Emilie started in a converted Citroën H van back in 2012 has now grown to be one of the fastest-growing and most exciting tea brands in the UK, with Good & Proper Tea now supplying a growing network of the best cafes, restaurants, hotels and independent shops across the country.
