Sencha One-Cup Teabags - 12 Bags
Produced from sencha buds and flakes, this single-serving teabag has an authentic character, with light umami and astringency.
A harmonious blend of sweetness, bitterness, richness, astringency and fragrance - this is sencha. It s easy to understand why sencha is such a favorite beverage in Japan, not only for those seeking to quench a thirst, but also for those wanting to sip on something extra special.
Packed with flavorful mecha (shoots and buds), these tetrahedral teabags release the aroma and flavor of the tea.To fully draw out the tea's flavor, just let one teabag steep for about one and a half minutes in a cup of hot water—boiled water that has been allowed to cool slightly. Move the teabag around in the hot water until it has reached the desired strength, and you're done. Take a little more time than you would when making tea with a kyusu teapot in order to draw out the full flavor of this delicious tea.
Ways to Prepare
A hot cup of tea.
- Add one sencha teabag to a cup, pour on less-than-boiling temperature water, and wait for 1.5 minutes.
- Move the teabag around in the cup until the tea has reached the desired strength, and you're done.
This 12-bag box, which includes instructions on the back in both English and Japanese, will provide plenty of delicious tea for your enjoyment at home or at work.

The tea is great but I really like the individual packaging and the teabag opening and preparation experience. Definitely worth the cost.
Could be a little more flavorful, but still really good! Too pricey to be an everyday treat, but nice on occasion.
Make sure you use the right amount of water! I accidentally used a full 8 oz the first time and was very disappointed. It’s much better when using the recommended 150ml (somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 cups).
The Sancha Tea bags were the best tasting green tea I've ever had. I honestly don't have the patience required to have a good cup of Mancha but, perhaps some day.
