Guricha is different from Sencha both in appearance and taste. This tea benefits from a specific manufacturing process that creates a tea similar in appearance to the pan-fired teas of China. Guricha is steamed and fashioned into "comma" shaped leaves by omitting the final kneading process. We recommend Guricha for those who like Sencha's taste but may think Sencha is a bit strong. Consequently, we say Guricha is a milder version Sencha.
