        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.

                Uji Sencha Musashi

       is delighted to offer the exclusive Tsuen blend "Musashi" from Japan’s oldest teashop, now available in a generous 140-gram package. This unique proprietary blend features karigane sencha made from the Yabukita breed, enhanced with stems from gyokuro leaves, which infuse the tea with a distinctively strong astringency and a sharp, tart flavor profile.

It shares similarities with Tsuen’s Otsūsan but offers less sweetness and more astringency, catering to connoisseurs who prefer their tea with a bit more bite. Whether you’re a longtime fan of Japanese green teas or looking to expand your palate, Musashi is a remarkable choice that stands out for its intensity and depth.

                Try Musashi today and consider taking advantage of our convenient automatic monthly delivery service, ensuring you never run out of your favorite robust green tea.
