Why Sencha Tea Should Be Part of Your Self Care Routine
Rich in flavor and health benefits, Sencha is recognized as one of the most popular green teas in the world. Its light, grassy, and refreshing flavour is loved for its cooling effect. Its low to moderate caffeine content makes it a great morning drink.
What is Sencha?
Sencha comes from the upper leaves and buds of Camellia Seninsis. It originated in Japan, but is also produced in China, South Korea, and other tea-producing countries.
Similar to other types of green tea, Sencha has high levels of antioxidants, specifically catechins, making it highly beneficial. The minimal processing of Sencha also helps preserve the benefits of this tea.
Benefits of drinking Sencha Green Tea:
Improves Blood Flow
Regular consumption of green tea is linked to improved blood flow. This results in lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and helps decrease the risk of heart failure. Green tea is also highly beneficial for diabetics as it helps regulate sugar levels. 
Boosts Brain Function
Research has shown that green tea drinkers had greater activity in the memory portion of their brain.  By protecting your brain from nerve cell death, green tea may help reduce the risk of getting degenerative diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. 
Aids in Weight Loss
Several studies have shown that drinking green tea, such as Sencha, can help increase your metabolism and ability to burn fat as you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
