This mellow Japanese green tea is grown in the pristine tea fields of southern Japan's Kagoshima Prefecture. Its bright green flat leaves are picked early in the season then steamed to ensure freshness. Japanese Sencha Green tea is often referred to as “the white wine of teas”.
Brewing and additional information
Our Japanese Sencha Green tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a boil and then allowed to cool for 2 minutes (160-170° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Sencha Green tea should be steeped for 2-2.5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
