Japanese Decaf Sencha is grown in the Zhejiang Province located in the West Lake Region of China. As the leading producer of tea, Zhejiang is well-known for producing teas such as Gunpowder, Mei Longjing, and green leaf-scented Jasmine. The base for all of these teas is a China Green "Sencha-style" leaf.
You will note that this Japanese-style Decaf Sencha is tightly rolled into needle-shaped leaves. This traditional Japanese green tea is decaffeinated using a C02 process that does not detract from the tea's health benefits, the perfect balance of sweetness and astringency, and a clean finish.
Like most Japanese tea, the flavor is reminiscent of seaweed, or a grassy flavor because of its vegetal notes. This loose-leaf tea should steep at 170 degrees for 1-2 minutes using 1 teaspoon of tea for every 6oz of water. From there, you may adjust the amounts of Japanese Sencha tea according to your taste.
