Green tea contains less than a quarter the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping green tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water just short of boiling. Then pour water over tea and steep for 1-3 minutes (if using a tea bag) or 2-4 miuntes (if using full-leaf tea.)

A very different and almost nutty green

This is probably my new favorite green tea. It is almost nutty in it's taste but its not the primary note. It lacks that grassy character that I do like but its so unique I love it. It's very mellow and not full-body like some others and I am able to get 4 steepings from it. I have not come across anything like this tea anywhere else.

What a beautiful name for the best tasting green tea that I've tasted so far. The taste is very delicate and never bitter like some of the others I've tried. Love this stuff.

There is something special about this tea. A very peaceful feeling descends upon me during and after sipping a cup. It is a most pleasant sensation. Try it and see!
An old friend revisited

Sometimes absence does make the heart grow fonder. I hadn't re-ordered Sky the last time, and just brewed up a pot after receiving my order last week.
With a little care to brew w/correct water temp. this green tea is delicious. Good color and mouth feel, not overpowering grassy taste but a good balance w/slight nutty-butter (probably chestnut) undertones.

If green tea drank green tea this is what it would drink. No frills and really good.
