Loose leaf green tea.
Product Description


    Japan Sencha is a traditional green tea of excellent quality with big leaves, a bright cup and the Japanese taste you expect. Green teas have been neither fermented nor withered. Instead, the leaves are simply sterilized in steam, hot air, or hot pans to prevent fermentation. The leaves are picked in spring therefore producing a green color leaf and light, pale, greenish-yellow sparkling liquor often with considerable aroma, body and flavor. This tea is distinct because of its slight vegetal notes.

    Sencha, which is produced in Japan, Taiwan, and China is an everyday tea commonly found in homes and offices throughout Asia. This extraordinarily delicious green tea is rich in vitamin C and has numerous potential health benefits, but is most known to be sipped with meals to aid in digestion. It was the Buddhist monks that first brought tea to Japan. They brought along with it, the tea culture and tea plants.

    It took six centuries before tea was fully embraced by the Japanese, but by then it was a full-blown love affair. Cha-no-yu is a Japanese tea ceremony that includes ceremonial tastings, contests and all things tea. Almost all of the tea made in Japan is green tea. It is carefully tended to, painstakingly prepared, and finally enjoyed in ceremony.

    We recommend that when brewing Japanese Sencha, you brew 4 teaspoons in 1 3/4 cup of 194-degree boiling water. Infuse for 1-2 minutes. For optimal flavor we suggest that you use cool bottled water.

    This gourmet green tea is in loose-leaf form.
