Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita Green Tea

‹Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Japan is renowned for its elaborate tea ceremony and for producing green tea that changes its taste as it cools. However, Organic Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita isn’t one of them. While Japanese and deserving of ceremony when it’s brewed, Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita maintains its mild yet stimulating taste at whatever temperature it’s drunk.

Even when it is brewed for the first time. Its deliciously sweet aftertaste also lingers.

After the leaves are harvested they are only lightly steamed. This enables Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita’s green leaves to retain their low levels of caffeine.

Whether or not you choose to perform a ceremony when serving this authentic Japanese tea,  Kagoshima Yabukita can be drunk on its own, when your taste buds or by brewing a pot and sharing with friends.

BREWING INSTRUCTION:

 

THE WATER TEMPERATURE

  • The golden rule about water temperature is never use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
  • Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
  • These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.

 

THE AMOUNT OF TEA

  • Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
  • In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.

 

THE BREWING TIME

  • This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
  • Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea, because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
  • Brewing is normally done with a lid on, so that the tea retains all its aromas.

  2. Gary E

    I really like this tea, the seller is excellent, would definitely buy from them again.

  3. Paul Ockenden

    If you like green tea you must try this. Yes it’s expensive compared to others, but when you taste it you’ll know why. I don’t know how to describe the difference – perhaps ‘cleaner’, if that makes sense. Thanks a lot for this tea. Highly recommended 🙂

  4. Liang

    I am from China and I have drank a lot different type/brand green tea. This is one of the best I have ever tasted! Of course there are some nicer green tea out there, but you have to pay a lot more.
