            Sae Midori Organic Asamushi Sencha

            Packed with umami and one of our personal favorites, this delicious green tea comes from Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves.  When we first offered this in 2017, we knew we would buy it the moment we tried it. Organic Sae Midori asamushi is a light steamed green tea of the Sae Midori clone and is somewhat rare to be processed in the light steamed form. This product is both flavorful and aromatic, much more so than the typical deep steamed Sae Midori. If you are a light-steamed green tea fan, you should really enjoy this one.  As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

            Note - While we will try to get a larger inventory this year, know that this tea usually sells out every year by December.

            Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package

                            Glazed Teapot for Green Tea

                            A very pretty glazed teapot handcrafted in Tokoname Japan.  Features a very finely meshed removable stainless steel infuser basket for easy cleaning. This teapot is taller rather than wide making it especially suitable for deep steamed (fukamushi) green tea. Of course it will easily handle medium steamed green teas as well.

                            Although you could brew gyokuro or light steamed green teas in this teapot in a pinch, due to the nature of the larger leaf particles and the need for room for leaf expansion, a basket type of teapot would not be your first choice for those types of green teas.  We suggest you look in the Asamushi | Gyokuro | Light-Steamed Teapots cateogry of you are mostly brewing those types of teas.

                             

                            370ml / 12.5 oz capacity.

                                Shiboridashi Teapot for Green Tea

                                Handcrafted in Tokoname Prefecture, Japan. This type of teapot is becoming harder to find over the years. Since gyokuro should be brewed at a lower temperature with double the amount of loose leaf, notwithstanding the fact that gyokuro is usually the most expensive type of loose-leaf green tea available, the use of this teapot is ideal for gyokuro enthusiasts.  Multiple small infusions for individual cups. This teapot also works great for light steamed asamushi sencha as well.

                                How to Brew Gyokuro - Step-by-Step Instructions!

                                The actual size of this teapot is purposefully small and holds about 60ml / 2 ounces of water. The primary purpose is to hold enough volume to brew a single cup at a time, or perhaps two small cups of gyokuro. The thin gap between the in the inner body of the teapot and the lid eliminate the need for a filter basket.

                                Important to note - This teapot is meant to be used with larger leaf green teas (light steamed green tea) and gyokuro, it is not suitable for anything with a fine leaf particle such as deep steamed green tea (fukamushi-cha). 

                                The craftsmanship of these items is superb, and many not-so-obvious fine details went into making this teapot. Please note that since each of these items are had crafted, they may very slightly from the shown images. So, if you are a regular gyokuro drinker or have ever considered a foray into gyokuro, you will be hard pressed to find a better teapot for it than our handmade shiboridashi and houhin teapots!

                                                                  Grown organically in the mountainous Kirishima area of Kagoshima Prefecture. Lightly steamed, organic Kirishima Zairai sencha has a light yellow green color to it, medium body, and rather unique taste and aroma due to it's high iron content.  Zairai means "native" in Japanese and refers to the fact that this tea is from no known modern cultivar and is a close derivitive of the original tea plants imported into Japan from China in the 14th century. Since it is "wild" and grown from seed instead of cloning, there is quite a lot of variation between individual plants which gives the leaf a non-uniform leaf structure and charactaristics of a blend. Although it is considered a hardier plant to culitviate, the lack of leaf conformity, in addition to lower yield than recent clones does not encourage growers to grow it means you will not come across this unique tea often.

                                                                  Very delicious, here's your chance to experience a green tea with characteristics of the teas of old Japan. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.
