    Organic Sencha

    Organic Green Tea, Loose Leaf

    This Japanese green tea is mild and mellow tasting while offering a light astringency that lingers on the palate, and which never tastes bitter. The astringency increases as the liquid cools to transform Organic Sencha into a full bodied Japanese green tea. The second brew provides an even more mellow green tea with little to no astringency and a slight sweetness as the liquid cools. Organic Sencha is thoroughly delightful in all respects. Organic Sencha has been produced according to the strict guidelines of the JAS (Japan Agricultural Standard) and is certified organic.

    Brewing Suggestions:
    First Infusion: Add 1 gram of tea per 100 ml of fresh water, or about one tablespoon per potful. Heat the water to 80C (180F) and brew for one minute.

    Second Infusion: Brew with the same temperature water as the first infusion but for only a few seconds. Please note that the caffeine content of green tea becomes significantly less after the first steeping.
