Green tea leaves are not fermented or withered like some other types of tea. Instead, they are sterilized with steam or a hot pan. This Japanese Sencha green tea, picked in Japan during spring, is a traditional favorite and can be found in homes throughout Asia.
Taste and appearance:
These big, green leaves produce a bright greenish-yellow cup of tea with slight vegetal notes and a bold aroma.
Green tea health benefits:
Green teas are famous for their health benefits which derive from a large amount of antioxidants. Green tea may contribute to heart health, weight loss, and healthy skin as well as potentially lower your risk for diabetes or cancer. This particular Japanese Sencha green tea is also known to aid digestion.
Teaflection recommends brewing 4 teaspoons of Japanese Sencha in 3/4 cup of water. The optimal temperature for brewing is 194 degrees and the tea should infuse for 1-2 minutes.
