About this tea

Tea Story

Japan’s green teas are known for their vegetal flavors and sea air aromas, due largely to the initial steaming of the leaves, a practice that heightens the fresh, raw qualities of the tea. Steaming also brightens the cup – the best quality Senchas are lime-green when brewed. While more and more “Sencha” is actually China-grown tea made for the Japanese market, we believe only Japan’s distinctive varietals and expert leaf processing can produce the true flavor.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; let it cool for 2 minutes (180° F) before steeping tea for 3 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
