why buy organic sencha green tea?

how to brew Japanese sencha green tea

water temp180°F (not boiling)
time1-2 minutes
amount2 grams tea per 8 ounces water
infusion method Sencha tea leaves have been steamed and not pan-fried like Chinese greens teas. When infused with care Sencha tea reveals an enticing balance of sweet and bitter tastes. Lower temperatures and/or less time than other loose leaf teas is recommended.

Though tea balls and strainers are often used for tea that isn't pre-bagged, ideal methods of infusing loose leaf teas employ strainers that allow for the tea leaves to completely unfurl and release their flavor.

Some tea enthusiasts dispense with using strainers altogether and drop leaves in the pot directly and then strain the tea when serving into cups. When employing this method be sure to pour out all tea or remaining liquid will get bitter from over-steeping.
notes on tea strength The strength and flavor of tea is a personal experience.

We aim to provide times and temperatures that reduce the risk of allowing the actual tea leaves (or other delicate herbs in blends) to taste bitter due to too much steep time or to get scorched from too much heat.

If you desire a stronger cup, we suggest using more tea rather than a longer steep time to minimize the potential for a more bitter flavor.

What are the benefits of sencha green tea?

Some say green tea is one of the healthiest beverages you can drink as it’s loaded with antioxidants that have many health benefits, which may include:

  • Improved brain function
  • Fat loss
  • Protecting against cancer
  • Lowering the risk of heart disease

Sipping sencha green tea can help you slow down and relax due to a natural chemical called theanine found in green tea which can provide a calming effect. It also contains less caffeine than coffee and contains the amino acid L-theanine, which can work synergistically with caffeine to improve brain function.
