Shibushi Sencha Green Tea Bags
Hot or Cold Brewing
30 Tea Bags In Resealable Foil Package
We recommend this product for those who desire excellent tasting Japanese green tea without brewing loose leaf green tea leaves. The first infusion results in a very smooth, mellow, slightly sweet tasting liquid that never becomes bitter. It also offers a very unique slightly roasted odor and after taste. The second steeping is milder and less complex than the first but still very satisfying. The outer resealable package is made of heavy duty foil which insures product freshness. We are confident you will like this product so we guarantee your satisfaction.
Our highly regarded supplier from the Shibushi area of Kagoshima Prefecture is one of the few in all of Japan that harvests from its own tea fields and operates its own factory. The entire tea making process is expertly managed from start to finish.
- 30 bags per foil package

Hot Brewing Suggestions
Place one tea bag in a standard size teapot (please see the image above) or comparable size vessel. Heat the water to 80C (180F) and brew for one to two minutes depending on your desired taste. The tea bag may be infused a second time by using the same temperature water and steeping for 30 seconds or less. Please note that the caffeine content of green tea becomes significantly less after the first steeping. Please be careful when removing the bag from hot water as there is no string and tab attached. We suggest using a spoon.
Cold Brewing Suggestions
Place one tea bag per one liter of water in a pitcher or other container (please see the image below), let stand in your refrigerator for two hours, then stir. The resulting liquid will taste mild and very refreshing.
Notes: We brewed the tea as suggested above in our taste tests in order to write the product description. We recommend that you experiment with your own techniques to find the your most desired taste profile. Our products may be kept in your refrigerator before the package is opened. After opening the package, seal and store it in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Please do not place an opened package back into your refrigerator.
