The fragrant bouquet, perfume like in its complexity, comes from pairing the finest Australian boutique Japanese Sencha with the seductive aroma & flavour of delicate Jasmine. Together, they offer extraordinary health benefits – improving our metabolic rate, reducing inflammation with its high antioxidant content, enhancing brain function, & improving mood, anxiety issues, vigilance, reaction times & memory. We could go on & on, like those painful parents at school prize givings, but instead, we’re going to suggest that you just make a pot & let this elegant green tea beguile your senses while it works its magic…
Together, Sencha & Jasmine offer extraordinary health benefits. They are rich in antioxidants & polyphenols, which are understood to reduce inflammation and fight cancer. There is sufficient caffeine to improve the firing of neurons and the concentration of neurotransmitters in the brain without the jittery effects of coffee. It?۪s been shown to enhance brain function and improve mood, vigilance, reaction times & memory. It increases the action of GABA in the brain which reduces anxiety. Studies show promising results with the bioactive compounds offering protective effects on the brain in cases of Parkinson?۪s & Alzheimers. It also improves metabolic rate (thereby aiding weight loss), and lowers the growth of bacteria (benefitting dental health & oral hygiene). Controlled trials show it improves insulin sensitivity and lowers blood sugars. Woah! Over-achiever, or what?!?!
Serving size 2g
Warm your pot first ??? swish around some hot water and tip out. This tea is quite delicate and we really like to use only a scant teaspoon per person, but you?۪ll work out your own taste preference. Green tea benefits from a slightly lower temperature than other teas. If you have one of those fancy kettles it will have a green tea setting at 85 degrees. If on the other hand you have an ordinary kettle (like we do), let it come to almost but not quite boiled (if your kettle is clear, this is when little trails of bubbles start to appear, like when you poach eggs). Pour the water over the tea and allow to steep for 2-3 minutes. We choose a teapot that has a removable strainer here, or use a tea ball as, unlike many of our other teas, we don?۪t like to let this keep getting stronger. You can always pop the strainer back for a second pot. Choose your finest china for this ??? we have a beautiful, ornate pot with very delicate cups and it is just divine to serve this in it!
