Tea of the Week: Sencha Decaf

Congrats to Marlena (she’s got a great tea blog) for winning last weeks Jasmine with Flowers tea! I need your snail mail addy to get it off to you. I have another one of our top selling teas to feature this week, Sencha Green Decaf. Make sure to comment for a chance to win 4 ounces of this wonderful tea!

Tea_FieldAbove is a beautiful Japanese tea field, I love the symmetry of it. One of these years I will actually visit one. Just picture the leaves in your cup coming from such a beautiful place. Below is a picture of a Japanese Tea Garden, another place to visit someday. I can imagine sitting there with a cuppa green tea!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         All of our decafs are processed using the Co2 Process. The advantage of this decaffeination process is that no chemical solvents are used to remove the caffeine. Also, using the naturally occurring Co2 in a circulation process which carefully uses high pressure and temperature to extract the caffeine, the origin distinct character of the tea is retained in the cup. There is a slight change in the character of the tea due to the process but the end result is an uncompromising cup of tea with no chemical overtones.

On the home front, DH has been fishing every weekend…so there is plenty of fish for meals again. Ethan’s new school schedule is driving us crazy, I’ve never seen so much homework! It seems they want the parents (or grandparents in our case) to do more and more every year. Dogs are rotten as usual, they go to get groomed tomorrow (yah, good smelling puppies again). Leaves are starting to turn colors here, definitely feels like fall this week. They’re calling for frost tonight. You all have a great week!

These are some great pictures! I love Sencha as well. Jasmine green and white tea blends are among my favorite.

I wrote a post on my blog about the benefits and experience of tea if you were interested:
