Freshly picked tea leaves are immediately steamed and rubbed to release their flavor and aroma before slowly drying. This traditional process preserves Sencha's emerald green color and many healthy antioxidants, collectively referred to as catechins. A celebratory tea in convenient, Earth friendly tea bags. Sencha is the most popular tea in Japan, and always served in fine restaurants. Relaxing yet uplifting with 41 percent less caffeine than brewed coffee.

Note: consumers may wonder why Eden Foods products do not carry the green "USDA Organic" seal. Eden Foods explains: "Though all EDEN organic food is grown, handled, processed, and certified in a way that meets and exceeds the requirements for using the 'USDA Organic' seal, Eden chooses not to use this seal on its food labels. In short this seal does not approach Eden's standards for organic, in practice or in spirit."
