Product Description

Ryu Mei Organic Jokyu Sencha is our regular organic sencha grade. It is our most standard grade of Sencha widely available everywhere in Japan.

Sencha means "Roasted Tea" in Japanese is the most popular type of green tea in Japan. It is first imported from China, and later adopted by local Japanese farmers. Unlike the Chinese, Japanese green tea is first steamed for between 15-45 seconds to prevent oxidization of the leaves. Then, the leaves are rolled, shaped, and dried. This step creates the customary thin cylindrical shape of the tea. Finally, after drying, the leaves are fired to aid in their preservation and to add flavor.

Sencha contains a high content of antioxidant but also high caffeine too.

Sencha is known for prevention and treatment of cancer, reduction of heart disease, reduction of systolic and diastolic BP, fasting total cholesterol, body fat and body weight, helped to protect brain cells from dying, as well as 'rescuing' already damaged neurons in the brain, a phenomenon called neurorescue or neurorestoration. (Source Wikipedia). Other Health effect include reduction of stress level, reduction of intestinal inflammation, inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause bad breath, reduction of bacterial and fungal infections, and protection against cardiovascular disease.

Quantity Each cup 2.25 grams of tea per 6 ounces of water, or about 1 teaspoon of green tea.

Steeping Steeped 2 to 3 minutes.

Temperature Sencha Green teas should be prepared with 80°C to 90°C (180°F to 190°F) water. Noted that boiling water will rid of the Sencha leaves flavor and the tea will become overly astringent.
