Brew Guide:

 Amount: 6g (about 2tsp) Sencha


Water: 180ml (about 6oz) of 160º-175ºF water. 


Time: 30 seconds - 1 minute, or up to 2 minutes depending on your preference. You may also try hotter temperatures for shorter periods of time. You'll experience a range of flavors. Using the guide above will give you a sweeter cup, while using a hot water + short time brew method will extract more vegetal notes.Don't be afraid to experiment! Our producer notes that this particular tea reveals a super fresh flavor at higher temperatures while developing a more savory taste when brewed at lower temperatures.
