 Recipes for Tea 
Japanese Organic Teas: Sencha, Hojica, Kukicha, Mu 16, and Medicinal Teas

The first thing you will be offered as soon as you sit down in a Japanese home will be a cup of hot, slightly bitter and refreshing green tea. As has been written before, green tea is a symbol of hospitality in Japan. The Japanese refer to green tea as "Sencha" and are so fond of green tea that it is present at almost every social occasion. Brought to Japan by Zen priests, green tea was used as a means to assist clarity in meditation during long hours of intensive practice. The very finest green tea inspired the practice "Sadou" or The Way of Tea, more commonly known as the Japanese "Tea Ceremony." From monasteries green tea made its way into Japanese palaces and then on to common people's dwellings. Mitoku's Organic Nagata teas come from the Uji province and are harvested at their peak between June and September, then naturally sun-dried and hand-rolled.
