Explanation of Sencha is vauge[edit]

When I read about sencha I'm left not exactly knowing what sencha is. From the article I gather that sencha is a type of green tea but the article fails to explain how it differs from other Japanese green teas.

Among the types of Japanese green tea prepared by infusion, "sencha" is distinguished from such specific types as gyokuroand bancha. It is the most popular tea in Japan, representing about 80 percent of the tea produced in Japan.[2]

As you can see from the quote I took from the article, it explains that sencha is a kind of green tea that is different from gyokuro and bancha but doesn't explain how they are different.

I know very little about Japanese teas so I can't edit the article right away. I can fix the problem but honestly I don't know when I'll be able to do the research and write up. If someone here can fix the article so that it explains how sencha differs from other Japanese green teas it would be very helpful. -- Joel M.Chat ✐ 16:39, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
