    I really need someone to teach me how to drink Japanese Green Tea properly, the directions on the box say to pour the macha after its done brewing. But how do I know which is the macha and how do I know to only pour that out and not the other great tea stuff that's in it... eek too afraid.

    I agree those are confusing instructions. Matcha & Sencha are a strange blend for a teabag, because usually matcha is made by whisking powder directly with water, and sencha is steeped like regular tea leaves.

    I assume you're making this directly in a mug or cup? I'd use this like a regular tea bag, but bounce it up and down by the string to help the matcha mix with the water. You can even use a spoon to squish the bag more. Just make sure to remove the bag after 30 seconds because green tea gets bitter when oversteeped.

    I wouldn't open the teabag unless you're brewing it in a teapot that has a strainer, or using a basket style infuser. When I drink matcha/sencha blended I use a french press - the matcha gets thick and creamy and the sencha stays in the strainer where it belongs - at that point you might as well skip the teabags all together and buy loose leaf tho.
