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.
