Sencha oolong is a lightly oxidised Japanese style green tea with remarkable sencha-like characteristics. Mid spring flush.

Thousands of hours of tea processing and experimentation will always create surprises! Sencha oolong is certainly one of the most delicious yet.

Sencha oolong results from ongoing experiments with Japanese technology and ancient Chinese tea making techniques.  Oolong is more oxidised than green tea and therefore a much darker dried leaf and full bodied liquor. However this curious combination carries the most exquisite sencha characteristics with the oolong.

Sencha is popular form of green tea and makes up approximately 80 percent of the tea produced in Japan. Sencha is known for its health benefits, said to include an ability to fight chronic diseases, aid in weight loss, protect the immune system, increase energy, and stimulate cognitive activity. Tregothnan does not promote any health claims and lets the incredible taste speak for itself!

About us

Rare plants have been nurtured by the same family at Tregothnan since 1334. The first tea was grown in the UK in 1999 to put the ‘English into English Tea’ and the most British tea in history was first sold in 2005.

Now, over 26 miles of tea bushes thrive in the unique microclimate, seven miles inland and with a deep-sea creek bringing regular fog. Manuka bushes have also thrived here since the 1880’s, the first grown outside of New Zealand and producing the most delicious honey.
