The Tea: PRIMARY NOTES: Variety: Organic Sencha style green tea with natural flavors and components Grade: Japan Sencha style CUPPING NOTES: Cup Characteristics: This tea is fresh and smooth with excellent depth and body. The cherry flavoring and subtle rose hints give the tea a wildly exotic character. Infusion: Pale yellow green. Pairing Suggestions: Hake poached in fish broth with carrots, Wheat bread without butter, Lychee sherbet, Baby arugula, Endive and Blood orange salad. Food Use Suggestions: Deglazing (to make gravy for chicken or veal) is a technique used to create the basis for a sauce by using a liquid to dissolve all the tasty browned bits of meat, poultry or fish that would otherwise be left in a skillet or roasting pan after cooking. Wine or stock is often used, but brewed tea of nearly any variety will do. The amount of liquid you use will depend on the size of the pan, but the technique is simple: after skimming off excess fat and cooking liquid, splash in the Kyoto Cherry Rose, then simmer gently for a few minutes, all the while scraping up the flavorful residue from the bottom and sides of the pan. A dash of balsamic vinegar might add complexity, and of course you could then process the sauce further with any of a number of thickeners: eggs, butter, flour. WILD RICE WITH ORGANIC KYOTO CHERRY ROSE GREEN TEA 1 tsp. Kyoto Cherry Rose Green tea leaves 1/2 chopped tomato 1 tsp. each: chopped red, yellow and green bell peppers 1 tsp. chopped onion 1/2 chopped onion 1 tsp. thyme 1 bay leaf 1 tbs. butter 2 c wild rice 4 c chicken stock 2 oz. demi-glaze (concentrated chicken stock), optional.

ORIGIN NOTES: Manufactured in: Canada Ingredients from: China Region(s): Hunan Seasonality: Seasonal quality (Mar.-Apr. growth) Shipping Port(s): Shanghai Grade Composition: Japan Sencha Style Growing Altitude(s): 1500-4500 feet above sea level Manufacture Type(s): Pan Fired MORE ABOUT ORGANIC KYOTO CHERRY ROSE: Generally recognized as a rich source of antioxidants, particularly the Montmorency cherry, cherries are delicious in main courses, salads, side dishes and of course beverages. The blossoming of the cherry tree is quite an event in Japan and is generally known as 'the spirit of the season'. Cherries have a distinctive taste and explode with rich sweet flavour when combined with tea from Hunan and subtle rose. Kyoto is the cultural centre of Japan. Centuries ago Kyoto was the religious capital of Japan. The relics of this past are evident throughout the city. Beside the multitude of temples that dot the city, and the wonderful parks where religious scholars once walked, the city has more the 1000 Torjii - those typical gate/arch structures that one associates with Japan. The Torjii are large with the top shaped like a curved samurai sword (respect) and the two pillars are solid and stately (well being). During the springtime this area of Japan is ablaze with the new season cherry blossoms and the air is filled with sweet aroma. (The rose petals in this blend are intended to simulate these delicate cherry blossoms and the flavor is reminiscent of the beautiful smells waft on the springtime breezes.) It is little wonder that this ancient city has a very high ratio of tearooms and this tea was created to honor (very important in Japan) this wonderful time of the year. Hunan Province produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavor noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body. [In Hunan the tea starts growing about March 15th, and between then and the end of April the quality is very good. Once you pass April, the quality plummets on account of the volume of leaf taken in and the bushes growing too quickly. Our policy is that we only buy our China tea requirements from tea grown between March 15 and April 15 - you will taste our quality and dedication to better tea when you compare our tea with similarly graded teas]. Sencha is commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies marking events of personal importance. In this type of ceremony it is the ritual that is of paramount importance as the individual is being acknowledged. Flavored tea is a relatively new phenomena and combining flavors with roses and Japanese style green tea is almost considered ‘avant garde’ by our Japanese friends.

Regular Strength Tea: 1 teaspoon (2.2 gr. / 0.08 oz.) Stronger Tea: 1 ½ teaspoon (3.0 gr. / 0.11 oz.) Sugg. Brewing Temp: 100’C / 212’F Sugg. Brewing Time: Weaker < 3 min. / Regular Strength 4-5 min. / Stronger > 6-8 min* Sugar: Not recommended Milk: Not recommended Lemon: Not recommended Fresh Mint Sprig: Not recommended Hot tea brewing method: Traditional method (see note below): When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180°F/82°C. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon in your cup let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the cup. Adding milk and sugar is not recommended. Once the water level is low - add more water, and so on and so on - until the flavor of the tea is exhausted. Look at the pattern of the leaves in the brew, not only do they foretell your fortune but you can see the bud and shoots presenting themselves, looking like they are about to be plucked. Modern Method: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz/200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Adding milk or sugar is not recommended. Note: Traditionally, the recommendation has been that green tea be brewed at 180°F/82°C. Regretfully, modern society makes it necessary to consider that water may not be free of harmful bacteria and other impurities. Therefore you need to boil water to kill bacteria. If you wish to use traditional brewing temperatures bring the water to a boil and allow it to cool to the desired brewing temperature – it’s the food safe thing to do! Iced tea brewing method (Pitcher): (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of loose tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the tea or removing the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. Iced tea brewing method (Individual Serving): Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the tea. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about!) ANTIOXIDANT BENEFIT: More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis), or rooibos (Asphalatus Linearis), the longer it is brewed….and the more tea or rooibos that is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit. FOOD SAFETY ADVISORY: While traditionally green tea is brewed using 180°F/82°C water, in food service environments, we strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today’s water has been known to carry viruses, parasites and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illnesses.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS NOTES: • Green tea comes from the same plant as black, white or oolong teas, (Camellia Sinensis) and is an excellent source of antioxidants and polyphenols. • Antioxidants and tea polyphenols are documented in various research papers as inhibitors of various types of cancers in some cases. • A cup of tea consumed without milk or sugar or any other additives contains no calories. • One Japanese study concluded that women who drank 10 Japanese size (about 3 ounces) cups of green tea per day were likely to live cancer free for 7.3 years longer than those that drank less quantities of green tea. • There is evidence that men who get more chemicals called phytoestrogens in their diet have up to a 27% lower risk of developing lung cancer than men who do not get these chemicals. Green tea and black tea contain phytoestrogens. • Researchers found that routine intake of green tea may also help promote healthy teeth and gums. • Instead of drinking green tea, some people apply green tea bags to their skin to soothe sunburn and prevent skin cancer due to sun exposure. Green tea bags are also used to decrease puffiness under the eyes, as a compress for tired eyes or headache, and to stop gums from bleeding after a tooth is pulled. • Green tea is also used in an attempt to minimize the effects of Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diseases of the heart and blood vessels, diabetes, low blood pressure, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), dental cavities (caries), kidney stones, and skin damage. TRADITIONAL, THERAPEUTIC AND FOLK MEDICINE USE NOTES: • Tea - In 1650’s London, tea was sold as a health beverage. Claims at the time indicated that tea was "Wholesome, preserving perfect health until extreme old age, good for clearing the sight”…able to cure "gripping of the guts, cold, dropsies, scurveys" and that "it makes the body active and lusty.” • Green tea and its extractives have become widely used to enrich energy drinks, juices, vitamins and countless other food products all over the world. • For centuries China has 'run' on green tea. The locals knew that tea required exceedingly hot water and they also knew that exceedingly hot water did not carry various water-borne diseases. • The ancient Chinese know a thing or two when it comes to green tea. They consumed green tea because they saw a correlation between green tea consumption and fewer dental cavities or tooth aches. • The secret of tea is that it contains tannin, astringent vegetable compounds that act as a powerful natural disinfectant, PLEASE NOTE: The Tea is mailed from Canada. The USA delivery is classified as International mail so it usually costs more to mail from Canada compared to domestic rates in the USA. ALSO NOTE THAT Delivery to the USA usually takes between 6 and 14 BUSINESS DAYS. Sometimes longer. As with mailing teas to the USA, mailing tea across Canada is expensive for a single tea order, IE: 125 grams, 250 grams or 500 grams. As more teas are added to your order the cost to ship increases very little. Let me know the amount of tea you are going to buy and I will quote a shipping cost for you. You will be surprised at how inexpensive it is to mail larger volumes of tea. If you order a variety of teas I will combine the items to help reduce the shipping costs. In fact, If you buy $100 worth of my tea I will ship the tea for A $5 flat fee!!! I try to ship the NEXT BUSINESS DAY on all Paypal orders that I receive.
