From Uji Japan, one of our most popular items. Not to be confused with the "Matcha" used for the tea ceremony, Powdered Sencha is a good sencha that is ground into a talcum-like fine green powder. 1/4 teaspoon in hot water will give you an immediate supply of the healthy ingredients in green tea. Many add this to their shake mixes. Try it today!

Japan has very strict regulations regarding MRL's (maximum residue levels) of all food products, including tea. The Positive System of Agricultural Chemicals in Japan strictly regulates what types of pesticides can be used, how much can be used, and when they can be used. Growers must record what was used, when it was used, and how much used, and then submit the reports to the authorities.
Japanese green tea is further tested for maximum residue levels and are not allowed on the market if they go even slightly above the safety standard.
We would not even consider selling green tea which had harmful chemicals in it.

No, you normally just stir it in hot water. This will not actually dissolve however, you should mix it up and drink it relatively soon.
There is really no difference in taste and nutrition between these two teas, one is organically grown and the other isn't. I can't say one tastes better than the other, they are comparable outside of the organic label.
