Blended from new spring 2015 lot.
A tiny foil container of an outstanding grapefruit sencha was brought to us from Japan by a friend. We hoarded it, worshipped it, and ultimately finished it off.
Months went by and Candice kept bugging me to create a Zhi version. So I did. And it is pretty darn good if I may say so myself.
A simple blend of our premium sencha, grapefruit extract and pink grapefruit peel.
The result: a delightful top note that sits delicately over the rich grassiness of the sencha. Perfect, subtle, intoxicating aromatics. Very addicting. Currently Jeffrey's (my) favorite green tea, by far. And now a best seller. Great for multiple steeps. Moderate caffeine.

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t over-boil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
-If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences.
Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Health Benefits Green tea has been researched a great deal over the last 20 years. Results indicate that the catechins in green tea are responsible for a lowered risk of heart disease, lowered risk of cancer (especially prostate and breast), and potential reduction in onset of Alzeheimers.
