Great Eastern Sun, Organic Japanese Sencha Green Tea, 16 Bags 1.13 oz (32 g)10 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jan 2016
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.

Tea Ceremony in a Teabag
For several weeks in early spring, farmers in the Uji district, traditional center of the Japanese tea industry, gather the first flush of new buds and leaves for processing into Sencha, the highest grade of Japanese tea for export. The bud and top tow leaves are cut at the peak of flavor and quickly pan-fired to halt oxidation of the precious polyphenols. Next the buds and leaves are rolled into tight curls, slowly dried, and immediately packed to seal in the fresh flavor and aroma. Try our Haiku Organic Japanese Sencha Green Tea and you will understand why true connoisseurs of Japanese green tea will drink nothing else.

Whisked to a steaming broth, the cha is passed around. We sip its flavor: Ah.
