Japanese Green Tea

 Green tea is 'fixed' through steaming or pan roasting, just hours after the newest growth is harvested, thus retaining all the vitality contained within the leaves. 

 The first tea seeds were brought from China to Japan in the early 9th century by the monks Saicho and Kukai and the positive effects of tea on the five vital organs were later written about in the Kissa Yojoki by Zen priest Eisai.  1200 years of experience now brings us some of the finest Japanese green tea to be enjoyed.  Sugoi!
