The mellow, grassy undertones of green tea in this blend are interwoven with delightfully sweet notes of raspberry that will make you say “Ooooh-la-la”! Refreshing and smooth, reach for this soothing green tea blend when you need a moment to catch your breath or gather your thoughts.This blend uses a Japanese style green tea, called Sencha that is manufactured in Hunan Province in South Eastern China. Like other green teas, Sencha skips the fermentation process required to produce black tea. What sets Sencha apart from other Green teas though is how the leaves are prepared. The leaf is pan-fried or basket fired, which gives Sencha its distinctive dark green, glossy needle shaped leaves. Sencha tends to have a fresh, soothing aroma, while the flavor strikes a pleasant balance between astringent and sweet.This tea contains caffeine.

Some teas are recommended for brewing with boiling water, while others are brewed at lower temperatures. Even when brewing a tea at a lower temperature, it is recommended that you first boil the water (to kill bacteria etc.) and then allow the water to cool to the correct temperature (ice cubes speed up the process). While you can certainly brew any tea with boiling water, it will change the flavor of the tea.
