This organic green sencha leaf tea from Japan is a delicate, stimulating beverage made from the season’s fresh harvest of the first young leaves. The handpicked tealeaves from the high mountaintops of Japan are immediately steamed to retain their peak flavor and vibrant, brilliant, green color. Extensive research confirms the high anti-oxidant and poly phenol activity found in green tea, and it comes highly recommended as a general cleansing beverage. Because of the caffeine content, green tea should be prepared using small amounts of herb and steeped no longer than 1-2 minutes. Contains caffeine.
