Tea drinking came to Japan from China and was transformed. Follow the brewing instructions and you will be surprised by the subtle new flavors you will discover. Enjoy!
When we ship your Japanese Journey Sampler, we will include a descriptive page, found here. Perfect for a gift!
We chose these particular Japanese teas because they appeal to a broad variety of palates, and introduce a spectrum of Japanese teas.
Each one of the 1 oz samplers will come with its own brewing instructions. Generally you will brew 1 tsp of these teas with 180F water for 5-7 minutes. The exception is Matcha which will need water that is about 158-176 degrees. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup. Whisk vigorously with a Matcha Whisk in a rapid "W" shape action, until a thick froth forms.
