Hot tea brewing method: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly – about 2 times. The secret is to use water that is about 75’C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup let the tea steep for about 3-5 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment – do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low – add more water, and so on and so on – until the flavor of the tea is exhausted. Look at the pattern of the leaves in the brew, not only do they foretell your fortune but you can see the bud and shoots presenting themselves, looking like they are about to be plucked. Alternatively as with all top quality teas, scoop 2-4 teaspoons of tea into the teapot, pour in boiling water that has been freshly drawn (previously boiled water has lost most of its oxygen and therefore tends to be flat tasting), steep for 2-4 minutes (to taste), stir (virtually all the leaves will sink), pour into your cup but do not add milk or sugar since green tea is enjoyed ‘straight-up’.
This Sencha, from Mister Sugiyama’s small-scale production, is well-balanced and has a thirst-quenching chlorophyll side to it. Vegetal notes harmonize beautifully with notes of pistachio and a slight chocolaty bitterness to make this a pleasant and easy tea to enjoy. Thanks to both its flavour and its affordable price, it’s perfect for anyone seeking an everyday brew of excellent quality.
