Classic Japanese green tea, unlike Chinese green teas which are pan fired Japanese teas are steamed before drying, this gives the tea more of a green, grassy, vegetal, even seaweed like flavor. Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan and accounts for 80 percent of the countries tea production.
Brewing instructions: steep one teaspoon of Sencha in hot water for 1 to 3 minutes. Adjust amounts and steeping time to personal preference.
For iced tea, steep 2 Tablespoons of Sencha per 1 quart of water for 1 to 3 minutes. Strain, and pour over ice.
Tasty tip: Make a minty green iced tea by brewing it with fresh spearmint or peppermint. An extra sprig or 2 of fresh oregano will add a unique tasty twist.
