GREEN TEAS - are loaded with antioxidants!
SENCHA 40– GREEN TEA - (Japanese green tea is processed by steaming the leaves – this gives the tea a vegetal – or grassy taste.) The first flush (picking) is known as Sencha. The leaves from the upper shoots are most often picked because they are the youngest leaves and therefore a higher quality.
Sencha tea is a Japanese ryokucha (green tea), which is brewed with whole leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, giving the tea a number of impressive health benefits and a delicious, soothing flavor. The tea is yellow in color and is produced from the top buds and leaves of tea plants. It has a light aroma and is bitter-sweet in taste. Green tea refers to a type of tea that is not treated or processed in any way. Therefore, Sencha, being a green tea retains its nutrients and active ingredients, leading to the many health benefits.
Sencha tea is infused with many excellent health benefits, including its suggested ability to lower the risk of cancer, prevent chronic diseases, reduce blood pressure, balance cholesterol levels, aid in weight loss, protect the immune system, increase energy, and stimulate cognitive activity.

It maintains all the same suggested health benefits of other green tea.

The health benefits of holy basil, also known as tulsi, may include oral care, relief from respiratory disorders, as well as possible treatment of fever, asthma, lung disorders, heartdiseases, and stress. Holy Basil, which has the scientific name Ocimum sanctum is undoubtedly one of the best medicinal herbs that have been discovered. It has endless potential medicinal values and has been worshiped and highly valued in India for thousands of years.
Even going close to a tulsi plant can protect you from many infections. A few leaves dropped in drinking water or food can purify and kill the germs within as well. Even smelling it or keeping it planted in a pot indoors can protect the whole family from infections, cough, cold, and other viral infections.

- Start with fresh, cold water and heat in a nonreactive kettle until just below boiling
- Measure your Earl Grey tea and place in your tea infuser and allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes
- Reserve some hot water and fill your teacup. Let sit for about a minute to warm the cup, then pour the water out. Then add the milk to the warm cup—this will bring the milk to temperature so it doesn’t curdle.
