Made from premium wild harvested leaves of Japanese Yomogi (Artemisia Princeps). Yomogi is the Japanese "wonder herb" member of the chrysanthemum family.
The first mention of Yomogi as an herbal treatment is in the ancient medical book "Meiibetsuroku" published in 500 AD. It describes Yomogi as a source of healing power for whatever ails a person.
Yomogi leaves contain Vitamins A, B1, B2 and C, as well as minerals such as iron, calcium and phosphorus. They give off a fresh, spring-like fragrance because they contain cineole and other essential oils.
Easy to prepare and commonly served hot or cold.
This tea is prepared from freshly-picked leaves, which are not crushed, but cut in strips in traditional Japanese sun-giri (寸切り) style. One "sun" is the Japanese unit of measure equal to the width of a person's thumb at the knuckle. See picture in gallery.
Crushed leaves are many times more prone to oxidation along their edges. Sun-giri ensures that the leaves are as close to their natural form as possible, at the same time minimizing oxygen exposure.

Senjiru is a time-tested Japanese method for brewing herbal teas. It is used to yield the maximum goodness locked deep in the leaves, and to deliver the optimum combination of aroma, flavor and color.
Senjiru brewing is basically a rapid boil, followed by a simmer and then a cool down period.

This tea is delicious. It has a greeny-lemony taste, very fresh and reviving. Unusual but good. Healthful and enjoyable.
