The emperor of green teas, delicately smooth with a fresh cut grassy lingering aroma.
Previously called Imperial Sencha, this green tea has a mild smooth taste with pale green hues. A perfect beginner's green tea.
Compared with black tea, this green tea contains less caffeine and more L-theanine (an amino acid that's calming and can balance the effects of caffeine) this is a drink you can enjoy and feel good about drinking.
Getting the perfect brew of green tea is simple, though often missed; getting the temperature and time just right. Many people find green tea too astringent because the cuppa is brewed at 100˚c. As green tea is delicate, it requires cooler water in the brewing process.
Brewing green tea at 80˚c brings out all the benefits of the green tea while leaving the bitter tannins within. This brew will yield a sweeter and much smoother brew with complex flavours not overpowered by tannins.
