This tea is prepared from freshly-picked leaves, cut in traditional Japanese sun-giri (寸切り) style. One sun is the Japanese unit of measure equal to the width of a person's thumb at the knuckle.

Crushed leaves are many times more prone to oxidation along their edges. Sun-giri ensures that the leaves are as close to their natural form as possible, at the same time minimizing oxygen exposure..

The Japanese Senjiru Method

Senjiru is a time-tested Japanese method for brewing herbal teas such as Biwa Cha. It is used to yield the maximum goodness locked deep in the leaves, and to deliver the optimum combination of aroma, flavor and color. You begin with a rapid boil, followed by a simmer and then a cool down period. No special setups are required.

The following instructions are for making 4 cups (250 ml or 8 oz each — 1000 ml in total.) You will be using about 5 grams of loose tea. However, depending on your own taste, use as much as suits you.

Important: Always use good quality water and a non-reactive kettle.

➀ Pour a little more than 4 cups of cold water into a tea kettle. Add 5 grams of loose tea (about 2 heaping tablespoons.)

➁ Heat to a full, rolling boil.

➂ Turn heat down. Simmer for 15 min

➃ Turn heat off and wait for 10 min.

➄ Strain and serve hot or cold
