Peter's Pick

Japanese organically grown Sencha with a slightly tart grassy taste best describes this Sencha Green Tea. This is a quality Japanese Sencha at a good price with a pleasant mild & aromatic leaf. Japanese grown Sencha teas are available in many different grades and this one is a medium middle of the road Sencha and is popular for its rich taste and dark jade colour. Try this one and you will find it a good everyday tea for not only Sencha lovers, but green tea lovers too.

We certainly taste test every tea we import and this one got a ‘good tea go’ It was not until I decided to drink Japanese Green teas for a while that I discovered this one. I appreciated about this tea was its ability to withstand incorrect steeping to a fairly significant degree. All of us ‘Steepers’ make errors from time to time with water too hot, steeping too long and end up throwing good green tea away because we messed up. I have steeped this one longer on purpose and despite the longer time ‘under water’ it was not that bad and really surprised me. Japanese Green Teas are generally quite bitter if steeped too long or too hot. This one defied my previous thinking. As a bonus this Japanese Sencha Organic Tea has a very appealing taste to most North American tea drinkers, especially the ‘new to green tea or first timers’. Every tea shop needs a tea like this! So many tea buyers are turned off of green tea because they purchase the wrong green teas for their tastes. These sweet aromatic leaves infuse to produce a soft, smooth and mellow tasting green tea with slightly grassy notes and gives at least 3 enjoyable infusions.

Come on into our store and talk to us about why this may be the green tea for you. We will give you a sample to see if Japanese Sencha Organic Tea should be in your tea cupboard.

We are customer friendly and we love to talk and drink TEA!

Brew Ha-Ha

Green tea is a type of tea made solely with the leaves of Camellia sinensis that has undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea originates from China and has become associated with many cultures in Asia from Japan to the Middle East. Recently, it has become more widespread in the West, where black tea is traditionally consumed. Many varieties of green tea have been created in countries where it is grown. These varieties can differ substantially due to variable growing conditions, processing and harvesting time. Over the last few decades, green tea has been subjected to many scientific and medical studies to determine the extent of its long-purported health benefits.

Chinese and Japanese Green teas differ in processing, therefore are different in taste. The Chinese stir fry, roast, semi-roast and semi-fry, solar dry and steam, while the Japanese teas are only steamed and dried.

Nutritional

Green tea consumption is reportedly associated with various health-promoting properties. For example, it has been shown to promote fat oxidation in humans at rest and to prevent obesity and improve insulin sensitivity in mice.

In a study performed at Birmingham (UK) University, it was shown that average fat oxidation rates were 17% higher after ingestion of Green Tea Extract than after ingestion of a placebo. Similarly the contribution of fat oxidation to total energy expenditure was also significantly higher by a similar percentage following ingestion of Green Tea Extract. This implies that ingestion of Green Tea Extract can not only increase fat oxidation during moderately intensive exercise but also improve insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance in healthy young men.
