                                    Karigane Gyokuro Asagiri - From Uji

                                    Introducing Uji Karigane Gyokuro "Asagiri" from Uji, near Kyoto—a superb blend that combines the first harvest of gyokuro leaves with gyokuro stems. Known for its shade-grown cultivation, gyokuro boasts a greener hue and a naturally sweeter taste compared to more commonly found green teas. This specific blend enriches the classic gyokuro with the addition of stems, introducing a delightful tartness that complements its sweetness.

                                    Uji Karigane Gyokuro "Asagiri" offers a perfect introduction to brewing gyokuro, especially for those new to this style, at an economical price. The brewing process mirrors that of traditional gyokuro: use more leaf, brew at lower temperatures, and allow a longer steeping time to fully develop its depth and character. We recommend using 10 grams of tea per 300ml or less of water, pre-heating your teapot and teacups, and brewing at 55-60°C (131-140°F) for 1.5 to 2 minutes.

                                    Available in 100gm packages, Uji Karigane Gyokuro "Asagiri" is an excellent choice for anyone eager to explore the refined taste of a premium Japanese green tea.

                                        Kawane Wa-Kōcha

                                        Discover the unique delight of Kawane Wa-Kōcha, a premium Japanese Black Tea from the renowned green tea region of Kawane town (川根町) in Shizuoka Prefecture. While Kawane is primarily celebrated for its green teas, it also boasts a distinguished tradition of black tea production. This exquisite black tea, crafted by a venerated company established in the early Meiji period (circa 1875), is blended by a 73-year-old tea master using traditional techniques reminiscent of Darjeeling but with a distinctive Japanese flair.

                                        Kawane Wa-Kōcha beautifully marries the aromatic nuances of Darjeeling and Ceylon teas, offering a robust aroma, smooth flavor, and subtle Japanese sweetness. It is versatile enough to be enjoyed plain or enhanced with milk and sugar, particularly on the last infusion. The tea utilizes a blend of Zairai and Benifuki clones, and uniquely combines leaves from both the first and second harvests—a practice that enhances its bold flavor, setting it apart from typical Japanese black teas.

                                        For optimal enjoyment, bring fresh water to near boiling and steep two teaspoons per 8 ounces of water for 3 to 4 minutes.

                                        Consider this exceptional Kawane Wa-Kōcha as a rare addition to your tea collection—perfect for those who appreciate the richness of black teas alongside the freshness of Japanese greens.

                                        Package includes 100 grams of this high-quality Japanese black tea.

Made by an older, established company in Kumamoto prefecture Japan, this high quality persimmon soap produces a creamy lather and is blended with persimmon tannin, green tea extract, and red clay. It removes oxidized sebum, dirt. In Japan persimmon soap is often used as a solution to the dreaded old person smell (known in Japanese as kareishū 加齢臭) where it is of particular concern due to the high value placed on personal hygiene.

                                                          "Old-Person Smell" Really Exists, Scientists Say...

                                                          This soap contains high levels of persimmon tannin extracted from persimmon fruit. The tannin in persimmon fruit helps to abolish nonenal chemicals associated with old person smell and has a deodorant effect, acting to reduce body odor associated with seniors.

                                                          Persimmon leaf sushi has an antibacterial and deodorant effect. The persimmon tannin in it is believed to have a deodorant effect when it chemically reacts with body odor.

                                                          Added Green Tea Extract!

                                                          Unlike other expensive, competing products, green tea extract has been added to this soap. Green tea extract contains high levels of polyphenols (catechins), has an added astringency and deodorant effect, among other beneficial effects.

                                                          Having personally used this product ourselves, we can attest that it is a very pleasant general purpose soap in addition to it's other unique properties.

This exceptional tea is a once-a-year phenomenon during the shincha season, and once depleted, it won't be available until the next harvest. While Tsuen Tea does offer the Ujibashi San no Ma blend after shincha season, the Kirameki holds a distinctive charm that makes it uniquely sought-after.

                                                                          Meticulously crafted from the finest 100% Uji-grown (Wazuka village) Yabukita leaves harvested during the first flush, this asamushi (lightly steamed) sencha enchants with its vibrant, grassy aroma and refined flavor. Kirameki represents the epitome of Japanese green tea, offering a fleeting taste of spring's fresh vitality.

                                                                          Important Brewing Notes:  For this year's tea, brew similar to gyokuro at 60 C / 140 F for about 90 seconds.  This is lower than most sencha.  Thus, you should pre-warm your brewing vessels (teapot and teacups) prior to brewing, otherwise the result will be tepid.  If you do this correctly, you will be greeting with a wonderful umami green tea experience.

                                                                          Do not miss the opportunity to indulge in this limited-edition brew. Secure your 100-gram package today and immerse yourself in the exquisite pleasures of shincha season with Uji Shincha Kirameki.

                                                                                  Tokoname Shiboridashi Teapot

                                                                                  Discover the artistry of our Shiboridashi teapot, meticulously handcrafted in Tokoname Prefecture, Japan. This teapot is exquisitely tailored for gyokuro enthusiasts, accommodating the specific brewing requirements of this luxurious loose-leaf green tea. Known for its need for lower temperatures and higher tea-to-water ratios, gyokuro finds a perfect match in this teapot's design, which ensures optimal flavor extraction and precise temperature control during multiple infusions.

                                                                                  The Shiboridashi teapot's compact size, measuring 10.5 cm wide by 5.3 cm tall and holding approximately 100ml (3.4 ounces), is ideally suited for preparing individual cups of tea. Its unique design foregoes a traditional filter basket, featuring instead a narrow gap between the teapot’s body and the lid, which aids in a smooth pour while effectively retaining larger tea leaves, such as those of gyokuro and light-steamed asamushi sencha. This thoughtful feature makes it especially suited for teas requiring room to expand without escaping into the brew.

                                                                                  Please note, due to its specific features, this teapot is recommended for larger leaf teas and may not be suitable for finer leaf varieties like fukamushi-cha, which could slip through the gap.

                                                                                  Crafted with an eye for both beauty and functionality, each Shiboridashi teapot is a testament to the skilled craftsmanship of Tokoname artisans. Due to the handcrafted nature of these teapots, slight variations from the images shown are to be expected, each piece adding a unique character to your tea brewing rituals.

                                                                                  Ideal for those deeply invested in the nuances of green tea, particularly gyokuro, this Shiboridashi teapot promises a refined brewing experience, blending traditional techniques with modern aesthetic sensibilities.

                                                                                      A few years back, we stumbled upon a real treasure and immediately knew we had to have it—this incredibly delicious sencha green tea. It is crafted from the tender young buds that haven't quite reached full maturity, which gives it a unique gentle sweetness and a taste that lingers beautifully after each sip. This tea, our 100% Yabukita "Mio", comes from the first flush of spring leaves, right from the Sakabe District of the Makinohara Plateau—Japan's top spot for tea thanks to its superior soil and climate.

                                                                                      What sets Sencha "Mio" apart is its medium steaming process, which imparts a subtle sweetness that is distinctly pleasant. It's a flavor that stays with you, perfectly balancing sweetness with a light astringency that keeps it interesting cup after cup. This Yabukita variety captures the essence of those still-maturing young buds, known as miru-me, blending their charm with an exquisite softness that makes it one of the finest green teas you can find in Shizuoka.

                                                                                      Mio's sibling green tea, Haruna, also grown in the same district, is harvested just a day or two later. This slight delay allows the leaves to develop a bit more, deepening the flavor but reducing that characteristic softness just a tad.

                                                                                      Mio is wonderfully easy to brew, though we do recommend using a teapot designed for fukuamushi-cha to get the best results. Just remember not to use water that's too hot, or steep it too long, or use too much leaf.

                                                                                      Here's a little tip for brewing: cool your water to about 70 degrees Celsius (160 F) and watch carefully as the tea leaves unfurl to their full extent.

                                                                                      Like all our loose-leaf green teas, Mio is freshly packaged in nitrogen-filled bags to ensure it reaches you in peak condition.

                                                                                      Each package contains 100 grams of this delightful tea, promising many cups of serene, enjoyable moments.

Kabusecha boasts a beautiful green color and is available at a reasonable price, making it a fantastic choice for everyday enjoyment. Despite its gyokuro-like characteristics, it is best brewed in the manner of sencha to fully capture its delightful essence.
