A Japanese-Style Sencha produced in China using Japanese Cultivation and processing methods. Sencha 1818 Tea is NOT, however, Organic. What it is, is a very good, inexpensive, alternative to the more traditional (and expensive) Japanese Senchas.
While this tea is not recommended for serving to aficionados or tea masters, it is perfectly acceptable for everyday use.
Use 2 teaspoons per 16 to 24 oz pot.
Use Warm to Hot (140º - 160ºF.) water.
Steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
Hint: Increase water temperature higher to enjoy an earthy aroma and more astringency, while a lower temp will produce an sweeter, fuller-bodied cup.
Caffeine: 20 mg / 8 oz cup.
