I usually infuse my green teas for about 3 minutes, but this one suggests 40 seconds! Yes, 40 seconds…so…I’m being a good lil girl and following the directions!

The aroma is barely there.

The color is a murky green but oddly enough tastes very clean!

The flavor really enhances itself as it cools at room temp for a minute or two. It’s fairly sweet. This is a very nice GREEN. I’m happy I decided to follow the directions on the infusion time…it was JUST RIGHT!!!!

That’s be cause it’s a sencha. Several Japanese greens even have a 30 sec steep:)

Batrachoid

Indeed. The best sencha is usually 30 sec and 20 sec for the first two steeps. So with 40 you know you got healthful, healthy tea there.=)

Infusin_Susan

Wow. I can’t imagine steeping tea for such a short time…I would be concerned there would not be enough flavor.

Infusin_Susan, keep in mind that water volumes, tea leaf volumes, and water temps are not “normal” either. For info on steeping Japanese greens, go here:

I had to steep their shincha for a short time, but that was because the temperature was at 20F heavier than normal.

Even with Sencha I infuse longer…

LiberTEAS

Not all sencha teas are the same, nor should they all be treated/steeped the same.

Cofftea

Definitely agree w/ LiberTEAS. Anyone know what to do w/a Chinese Sencha?

Geoffrey Norman

@Cofftea – 1 teaspoon per 8oz steeped in 170F for two minutes for Chinese sencha.
