Sencha is the most-consumed green tea in Japan. Our Sencha is grown in the volcanic soil of the southern island of Kyushu, the second largest tea growing area of Japan. This is a beautiful leaf that steeps to a lightly vegetative liquor. Perfect for cold-steeping. It's healthy because it contains the powerful antioxidant EGCG. Drink four cups each day - hot or cold. Remember to never put boiling water on green tea!

Also available in pyramid sachets.

MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING CANCER CENTER SAYS…

Green tea contains substances called polyphenols, which scientists think contribute to its anticancer activity. Laboratory studies of one polyphenol, catechin epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), show that it may interfere with several processes involved in cell replication, causing tumor cell death. It also might slow the formation of blood vessels around tumors.

Epigallocatechin (ECG), another polyphenol, stops leukemic cells from multiplying in laboratory studies. As an antioxidant, green tea may repair cell damage, but whether it can prevent cancer is uncertain. It is also unknown how it might help protect the heart, but it reduces LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and increases HDL (“good”) cholesterol.

Tannins present in green tea generally have antibacterial properties.

So I've been looking for a quality looseleaf green tea, but all the dragonwell teas are getting outrageously expensive, what with the ridiculous health craze about green tea. I used to get top grade Rishi organic dragonwell teas for less than $30/lb, but those days are long past. Anyway, so I decided to take a chance with this green tea from Elmwood Inn. As it turns out, this sencha is very good. It's grassy and lightly sweet with very little bitterness. It brews to a very sencha-like, distinctive green cup. It's no lungjing, but it's very good. I would say my only minor complaint is that the bag does contain a fair amount of stems with no leaves attached, but for this price, it's acceptable. This is a solid value, and the quality is very good. I recommend this if anyone is in the market. It certainly blows bagged sencha such as Kirkland Signature Ito En Matcha Blend (Green Tea) (which is really MOSTLY sencha with a little matcha powder thrown in) out of the water!
