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 minutes (if using full-leaf tea.)

A Perfect Name!

This is my favorite summer time morning green tea! The flavor is excellent, never bitter, and it does make me think of looking up between tree branches at a beautiful blue summer sky.
It really hits the spot!

The aroma reminds me of doctor's gloves in a hospital but don't let that deter you from the wonderful nutty flavor! Sky Between the Branches is a special tea that harmonizes the sweet, nutty flavor with slightly bitter grassy tones. It's a tea worth trying!
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!

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.

Superb green tea with extraordinary calming ffects. I have enjoyed this tea for eight years and the quality of the product has remained pleasantly consistant.
A great light green

Upon opening the container, I was surprised by how sweet the tea smelled. The brewed leaves carried a similar smell, one reminiscent of White Peony (sweet, a bit fruity, with a hint of perhaps strawberry), albeit with the very distinct green tone of spinach or green beans.The dry leaves themselves are quite endearing and attractive. They look pretty cool, to be honest.
As for taste, the tea was wonderful. The liquor is a very pale green, making one feel as though it's a bit ethereal. The color reminds me a bit of a honeydew melon, albeit a bit darker in color. The tea has a taste that vaguely reminds me of honeydew melon. The tips (the dry leaves are interspersed with white, so I assume there are tips present)produce a natural sweetness along with a bit of fruitiness, which highlights the more serious vegetal flavors of the green leaves. The initial impact of the tea is similar to Dragon's Well, although lighter. However, while having the spinachy tones, it lacks the darker undertones of roasted eg
Nice, but light!

This is a very mild tasting tea, to me. I like it at night and first thing in the morning. Its so light tasting that I don't like to have anything else with it so I can capture the full flavor. Very pretty tea and smells wonderful.

Sky Between the Branches is the perfect green tea to enjoy sipping. The chestnut flavor is deep and natural, yet refreshing at the same time. Great choice for anyone.

I like dark, heavy tea - mostly. This is my favorite green tea. Subtle in flavor, not like fast-food chinese or fakey sport-drink stuff. My friend and I share this tea when we visit and are always surprised when we finish a third pot. Great tea to learn appreciation for the Green varieties.

truly chestnutty rich deep flavor.
My favorite green tea

I add about one quarter teaspoon of stevia and let the tea cool a little. It has a sweetness and a note that is like no other green tea. I believe it is called chesnut on the liner notes. Whatever it is, it's unique, and very delicious.
