Health Benefits

Japanese Yomogi (Artemisia princeps) leaves

Yomogi is the Japanese "wonder herb", prized as a prime medicinal herb since ancient times.[1]

To this day it plays a very significant role in beauty and health regimens of Japanese as well as Korean and Chinese women.

Yomogi leaves extract is widely used in skin care cosmetics and age spot treatments.

Scientific studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of the compounds within Yomogi's leaves for a wide range of disorders such as

  • Itchy and allergic skin reactions [2]
  • Inflammatory conditions [3]
  • Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) [4]
  • Infertility and endometriosis (uterine cancer) [5,6]
  • Cervical cancer and menstrual irregularity [7,8,9]
  • Breast cancer [10]

Also, a unique compound named Yomogin has shown to have promising potential in inhibiting the growth of leukemia cells.[11,12]

Uncrushed Leaves for Optimal Quality

This tea is prepared from freshly-picked leaves, cut 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.)

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.

How to Brew

The Japanese Senjiru Method

Senjiru is a time-tested Japanese method for brewing herbal teas. It is used to yield the maximum goodness locked deep in the herb, and to deliver the optimum combination of aroma, flavor and color.

Use good water and a non-reactive kettle to make tea

☞ Always use fresh, good quality water (but not distilled.) If tap water, let it run cold for at least 10 seconds before using it.

☞ Always use a non-reactive kettle such as glass, stainless steel, enamel or cast iron (never aluminum!)

☞ Best not to use infusers or tea bags. Loose pieces move more freely and make better contact with water, allowing for richer extraction of goodness and flavor.

The following instructions are for making four 250 ml cups (1 liter).

Senjiru: Add leaves to cold water

Pour 4 cups of cold water into a kettle. Add 5 grams (about 2 heaping tbsp.)

Senjiru: Heat to full boil

Heat to a full, rolling boil.

Senjiru: Simmer for 15 minutes

Turn heat down, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Senjiru: Tear heat off. Wait 10 minutes

Turn heat off, and wait for about 10 minutes.

Senjiru: Strain and serve.

Strain and serve.
