❤ UNCRUSHED FOR OPTIMAL QUALITY
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..

❤ HOW TO BREW
The Japanese Senjiru Method
Senjiru is a time-tested Japanese method for brewing herbal teas. Senjiru brewing in essence is a rapid boil, followed by simmer and then cool down period. It is a time-tested Japanese method for extracting the maximum goodness locked deep in the leaves, and to deliver the optimum combination of aroma, flavor and color.
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.)
