Port Trading Co., Organic Sencha Green Tea, 1 lb (454 g)11 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

100% Organic green tea is of light and delicate flavor. High in anti-oxidants (EGCG) and minerals. Unique quality tea from the cradle of green teas in China.
Organic Sencha Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) is a high grade green tea from the Jiangxi province of China, famous for its green teas. Our Sencha tea is high in flavonoids – called catechins and principal active component of EGCG (epigallocatechins gallate and Flavone C glycosides). Sencha is a light and delicate green tea, the choice of discriminating consumers.
For the best results use spring water or filtered water. Heat water just below the boiling point (180 F). Use one teaspoon of tea per cup (approx. 8 fl oz) and steep for 1 and 1/2 minutes. Serve strain and at safe temperature. Use proportionally to make a larger amount of tea. Enjoy the unique flavor of this high quality, healthy organic tea.
Organic camellia sinensis.
iHerb Customer Reviews
I drink a lot of Japanese Sencha tea and I guess you get what you pay for - this one is cheap compared to most. It comes from China not Japan which I wouldn't have expected to make much difference if the tea bush is the same, but it does. This just tastes like any green tea with the addition of a slight metallic taste. There is no way I would have identified this as Sencha - which to me has a very distinctive flavor. My bag went in the trash. I agree with the other reviewer - Starwest tastes far better.
organic, but very cheap. good!
