Food Use Suggestions: 1. Chop the tea leaves, combine with spices, and use them to coat chicken or steak before cooking.
2, Substitute a cup of Decaf Sencha tea for a cup of broth in vegetable-based soups. Throw
steeped chopped leaves into soup while it simmers to add extra greens.
3. After mixing the dough or batter for cookies, muffins, or scones, fold two tablespoons of dried
sencha tea leaves directly into it, then bake as usual.
4. Add a few tablespoons to a marinade for fish or shellfish. Sencha balances out sweeter
varieties, like halibut or scallops.
