Unrefined tencha (碾茶) tea leaves (the raw material used for matcha) is roasted to create a light-bodied roasted green tea. Tencha differs from other Japanese green teas in that it is shaded for about 4 weeks before harvest and is not rolled during processing; after steaming it is dried in a special tencha oven.
