Japan’s preventative healthcare practice of Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) involves sitting among forest trees for hours. The ritual can also involve drinking the country’s favorite tea…Sencha. It’s fresh, bright, and bittersweet with a clean ocean breeze finish. Inspired Earth rounds it out with supporting forest notes of Island Madrona Bark.
Sencha Tea is made from the first tender emerald green leaves of the tea plant. The leaves are harvested in early summer then steamed, twisted, and dried. While fresh and bright, its flavor is bittersweet with a hint of an ocean breeze, and has a clean finish.
According to legend the history of green tea began almost 5,000 years ago. The discovery occurred by accident in 2737 B.C. when the Chinese Emperor Shennong mistakenly drank boiled water served to him, that a dead tea leaf had accidentally blown into. He loved the scent and the flavor. And so do millions of people to this day as Tea is the second most consumed drink in the world (next to water).
The perfect cup – Gently pour 8oz of simmering water (180°-185° F) over tea bag. Steep 3-4 minutes or to desired taste. Enjoy among trees!
