From Japanese tea house Jugetsudo, a fresh all-occasion green tea. Like most senchas, this tea has a refreshing taste with a rich fragrance, stemming from its organic young spring leaves, and can be served hot or brewed cold. Sencha also contains theanine, which is a natural umami component, as well as antioxidant vitamin C and catechin. This beautiful cannister from Jugetsudo contains 50g of loose leaf tea, perfect for single-cup brewing or a whole teapot.
How to brew: Boil water to 85 degrees celsius. Brew for 50 seconds. Serve immediately.
The Japanese tea shop Jugetsudo was founded in 1980 by Maruyama Nori, a nori (dried seaweed) merchant. The word jugetsudo can be understood as “the place from where one looks at the moon.” When we look at the moon, we become humble and truly appreciate its eternal beauty. The Jugetsudo tea house offers the bounty of nature through their high-quality tea. More than 160 years of tradition and experience pursuing the highest quality ingredients promise not just a wonderful cup of tea, but also an enjoyable fragrance and a comforting, warm feeling.
