Shincha Sae Midori
First Picked Japanese Green Tea, Loose Leaf
Shincha Sae Midori offers yet additional variety in our Shincha product line. The first brew is subtly sweet and offers a mild spicy flavor we never notice in other green teas. The second brew becomes slightly earthy in tone. Our highly skilled supplier has created another masterpiece of taste. Please give it a try.
- 100 grams (3.5 ounces)

First Infusion: Add 1 gram of tea per 100 ml of fresh water, or about one tablespoon per potful. Heat the water to 80C (180F) and brew for one minute.
Second Infusion: Brew with the same temperature water as the first infusion but for only a few seconds. Please note that the caffeine content of green tea becomes significantly less after the first steeping.
Notes: We brewed the tea as suggested above in our taste tests in order to write the product description. We recommend that you experiment with your own techniques to find your most desired taste profile. For a healthy and invigorating refreshment in hot weather chill the liquid in your refrigerator/freezer to the desired temperature or pour over ice.
