Rune Tea are a newly launched, Bristol- based, family run company who sell their teas online. They believe in sustainability and want to bring loose leaf tea culture back to Britain. They were kind enough to send me some of their Sencha to try.
I would generally brew Sencha between 60-65c but I prepared this tea at 80c for 2 minutes as directed and I managed 3 infusions. It has a grassy vegetal flavour with a hint of sweetness. Sencha usually has a rather strong flavour, as most Japanese green teas do, but this is a delicate tea. It is the most delicate Sencha I’ve tried and it’s very refreshing.
You can find their range of teas for sale on Amazon.
