Traditional Japanese herbal tea. Made from premium wild harvested leaves of Japanese Dokudami (Houttuynia cordata) leaves.

Easy to prepare and commonly served hot or cold.


This tea is prepared from freshly-picked leaves, which are not crushed, but cut in strips 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. See picture in gallery.

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. 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.)

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
