How is our green tea produced?
Making of our quality Sencha green tea starts with plantations in Yame region of the Fukuoka prefecture in Japan, which is known for the pristine growing conditions, with abundant natural rain, high temperatures during daytime and low temperatures in the night. These are ideal conditions for tea plantations. The primary cultivar of our green tea is ‘Yabukita’, which is the first officially registered tea plant variety in Japan in 1953 and is still the most popular green tea in Japan.
Young, supple and early season tea leaves are plucked by hand (not machine harvested). The leaves are immediately steamed to prevent oxidation. Yame tea leaves are steamed for longer time (40-80 seconds), which gives the tea a perfect balance of light, refreshing aroma and umami taste, and golden, yellowish green colour when brewed. The tea leaves then go through medium rubbing and rolling, and then dried. This creates needle-like shape of the loose tea leaves, which open when brewed, releasing the refreshing aroma and balanced taste.
How to brew the perfect cup of our Sencha green tea?
Add 1 teaspoon (4 g) Pinnacle Sencha green tea leaves into a pot. Boil water and allow it to cool down to 80 degree C or 175-degree F. Pour the water into the tea pot and let the tea brew for 45 – 60 seconds (depending on the strength of flavour desired). The tea leaves will open and mostly settle down in the pot. Pour into a cup, serve and enjoy! The tea leaves in pot can be reused for another brew. Just add more warm water and let it sit for slightly longer this time before serving.
Sencha green tea is highly rich is antioxidants like EGCG, which rejuvenates the cells in the body and may help in fighting chronic and life-threatening diseases.
