Sencha is dried after steaming and, when dry enough, rolled into a variety of shapes until it is completely dry. Sencha teas vary greatly in quality.
The color is enhanced by covering the plants with black cloth or bamboo curtains to shield them from sunlight and help the leaves produce more chlorophyl. Gyokuro is steamed, then the stalks are removed by finishing tools. The leaves are dried, rolled and twisted into elegant pine needle shapes.
Matcha comes from gyokuro leaves. The leaves are thoroughly dried after steaming. This is tencha. The leaves are then ground into a superfine powder, and that powder is what is known as matcha.
