Our Organic Sencha Green Tea comes from the Zhejiang province in china. Made from steamed leaves of exceptional quality, the brewed cup is a light olive green with a bold vegetal flavor. This is the strong, pure green tea you have been looking for.
We offer Organic Sencha Green Tea on our Tea Menu in the Selby House Cafe at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida. A SOILON tea sachet is an option for this tea. Made from corn starch, SOILON is biodegradable, though home-composters should note that high heat is required, as found in commercial composting operations to completely breakdown SOILON tea sachets.
20 to 25 cups of tea can be made from 2 oz of loose leaf tea.
Brewing Instructions for Organic Sencha Green Tea
Steep this tea multiple times as loose leaf teas have far more flavor than traditional tea bags due to the superior quality and freshness. Tea strength is a personal decision, so please experiment to determine your preferences.
Use water between 180 and 190 degrees F, or allow boiling water to stand for 2 minutes. Steep your green tea as little as 1 minutes, but not more than 4 minutes. For each of the following steeps use water of the same temperature and double the steep time. Green tea can be steeped at least 2 times and depending on the steep times, as many as 4 times. Also, consider blending the first steep with the following steeps to balance the tea. If you do not want to drink all the tea, store in fridge for wonderful iced tea.
Store in a dry place.
