Strawberry Smile Loose Leaf Green Tea is a well balanced green tea loaded with subtle strawberry and lychee fruit.
Sencha is Japan’s most widely used tea and translates to mean “most common” but this tea is certainly not! Our Strawberry Smile is loaded with subtle strawberry and lychee fruit, sprinkled with Jasmine and Rose blossoms. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and if you are smiling as you read this, wait untill you taste it!
Our unique blend produces a nicely balanced sweet and fruity flavor with an unforgettable taste experience which makes it one of our best sellers. The emerald green leaves are picked between March and May each year, then lightly steamed. Sencha has long been used by Zen monks for stimulating and soothing qualities which promote mental clarity and calmness. With a high concentration of antioxidants green tea is said to lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar and aid digestion by metabolizing fats.
20 to 25 cups of tea can be made from 2 oz of loose leaf tea.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS - Steep this tea multiple times as loose leaf teas have far more flavor than traditional tea bags due to the superior quality and freshness. Tea strength is a personal decision, so please experiment to determine your preferences.
Use water between 180 and 190 degrees F, or allow boiling water to stand for 2 minutes. Steep your Strawberry Smile Green Tea as little as 1 minutes, but not more than 4 minutes.

Strawberry Smile Green Tea can be steeped at least 2 times and depending on the steep times, as many as 4 times. Also, consider blending the first steep with the following steeps to balance the tea. If you do not want to drink all the tea, store in fridge for wonderful iced tea.
