What is the best way to store green tea?
We recommend you to store your tea in a cool, dark and dry place. So during summer season, it is good to store the tea in a refrigerator once you open the packet. Please seal the package tightly or transfer tealeaves to an airtight container. We advise you to consume your tea within one month to enjoy a full flavor. If you need to store unopened tea for a long time, you can put the tea in a freezer. When you got the tea out of the freezer or the refrigerator, do not open the packet or the container until the temperature of tealeaves get back to normal in order to avoid the tealeaves absorb humidity due to dew condensation.
Do you offer Shincha Gyokuro or Shincha Matcha?
No, because unlike Sencha, Gyokuro tastes even better if it was matured for several months. Matcha is the same as it is made from Tencha. Tencha is made from tealeaves that were cultivated in the same methods as Gyokuro.
Is Japanese green tea good for weight loss?
Since there are many studies that show green tea may help to prevent obesity, it might be possible that green tea is good for weight loss but unfortunately, we cannot assure you of it as we are not expert in the scientific field, and we believe that this is the way to show our respect and sincerity to our customers.
Which green tea will give me the greatest health benefits?
We believe there should be no significant difference because all green tea eventually comes from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. Green tea has been consumed for hundreds of years in Japan, so it may help to promote general good health along with eating right and proper exercise.
