Our high-grade Japanese Sencha from Shizuoka, Japan, exceeds expectations. A spring tea, with a clear light green liquor and a full, slightly bittersweet, fresh grass flavor with notes of sea mist. And a great mouth feel.

Sweet, vegetal, with a pleasant clean finish are the hallmarks of our superior Japan Sencha. Steeps multiple times with sustained excellence.

Great for several infusions.

    This tea has a robust flavor and exuberant green tone. A highly distinctive green tea but WATCH OUT, if you steep sencha with boiling water your tea may have a mild bitter twinge. Make sure to use 160 degree water and steep your tea for 2 minutes MAX. Zhi Tea will provide you with a high quality leafy green tea and tea steeping instructions, the rest is up to you. I use my Perfect Tea Timer for this one, a useful purchase from the Zhi Gallery.

Water: 160°F | Leaves: 1 tsp per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 1.5 - 2 minutes

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!
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 Alzeheimer's.
The history of tea in China is long and complex. The Chinese have enjoyed tea for millennia. Scholars hailed the brew as a cure for a variety of ailments; the nobility considered the consumption of good tea as a mark of their status, and the common people simply enjoyed its flavor.

Tea was first discovered by the Chinese Emperor Shennong in 2737 BC. It is said that the emperor liked his drinking water boiled before he drank it so it would be clean, so that is what his servants did. One day, on a trip to a distant region, he and his army stopped to rest. A servant began boiling water for him to drink, and a dead leaf from the wild tea bush fell into the water. It turned a brownish color, but it was unnoticed and presented to the emperor anyway. The emperor drank it and found it very refreshing, and cha (tea) was born.
