Know your tea: Sencha is the most popular and most widely produced tea in Japan, and this Bright Sencha is shaded for 2 weeks prior to harvest, thus enhancing the sweetness, smoothness and airiness of this Sencha. It is steamed, rolled and dried, thus giving the leaves a thin, needle-like appearance.
Tasting Notes: Avocado, apricot, umami
Liqueur Body: Smooth and airy with a medium finish.
We encourage you to experiment with the amount of leaves, amount and temperature of water, and infusion times to reach your preferred strength of tea, but here's a suggestion for this particular tea:
3-5 grams of tea per 120ml of water at 75-80 degrees celicius. Infuse for 30 seconds. Reinfuse up to two times.
Pro Tip: Unlike Chinese teas, Japanese teas should not be rinsed, as the first cup is the most prized one.
Storage Instructions: Green tea is best stored in the refrigerator, in a dark, dry, and airtight container.
