                    Organic Kurasawa Sencha

                    Explore the robust qualities of Kagoshima Organic Sencha "Kurasawa", meticulously grown in the organic fields of Kirishima, Kagoshima. This light-steamed sencha boasts an intense green-yellow hue and a fresh, grassy aroma, making it a standout selection for green tea enthusiasts.

                    Distinctive in its composition, Kurasawa contains approximately 1.5 to 2 times the catechins found in regular sencha, offering a potent source of these beneficial antioxidants. This high catechin content adds a notably astringent quality to the tea, so it's recommended to brew it at lower temperatures to fully appreciate its depth without overwhelming bitterness.

                    Ideal for those seeking the health benefits of green tea, "Kurasawa" is not only healthful but also delicious when brewed correctly. We believe in the exceptional quality of this tea and are confident it will become a cherished part of your tea collection.

                    As with all our teas, it is packaged in nitrogen-flushed bags to ensure it reaches you with its freshness and flavor intact.

                    Each package contains 100 grams of Kagoshima Organic Sencha "Kurasawa," ready to enhance your wellness regimen with its superior taste and health properties.

                        Uji Shincha Kirameki

                        Experience the rare delight of Uji Shincha Kirameki, exclusively offered by the historic Tsuen Tea Shop, Japan's oldest tea merchant residing along the picturesque Uji River for over 860 years. 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.

                            Experience the distinct pleasure of our first harvest organic sencha from Nishimoto, located in the lush Chiran region of Minami-Kyushu, Kagoshima Prefecture. This exquisite tea is a sophisticated blend of Yabukita, Yutaka Midori, Asatsuyu, and Kanayamidori breeds, all cultivated under strict organic practices to ensure the highest quality and sustainability.

                            Deep-steaming techniques are employed to enhance the vibrant green color and enrich the flavor profile, resulting in a tea that is both visually striking and deeply satisfying in taste. The aroma is compelling and rich, offering a sensory experience that is both refreshing and indulgent.

                                Sae Midori Organic Asamushi Sencha

                                Explore the exquisite subtleties of Kagoshima with our Organic Sae Midori Asamushi sencha, a prized green tea known for its light-steamed delicacy. Originating from the first flush of the Sae Midori clone, this tea is a rare find, introduced to our collection in 2017. It quickly became a favorite for its profound umami taste and rich aroma, distinguishing itself from more heavily steamed varieties.

                                The lighter steaming process of this Asamushi version enhances its aromatic qualities and flavor, offering a tea experience that is both nuanced and refreshing. Each sip delivers a vibrant burst of flavor, perfectly balancing invigoration and relaxation.

                                Packaged in nitrogen-flushed bags to maintain optimal freshness, each 100-gram package of this green tea is designed for connoisseurs who treasure exceptional quality.

                                Due to high demand and limited quantities, Organic Sae Midori Asamushi is often sold out by December each year. We encourage you to secure your portion of this exceptional tea soon, ensuring a special place in your tea repertoire.

                                    Shizuoka Sencha Mio

                                    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.

                                        Shizuoka Sencha Haruna

                                        Discover the delightful richness of Shizuoka Sencha Haruna, a green tea celebrated for its unmistakable sweetness and vibrant, full-bodied flavor. Grown in the nutrient-rich soils of the Makinohara plateau's Sakabe area, Haruna is harvested at the peak of its taste profile, ensuring each cup is a profound experience.

                                        Named after the supplier's daughter, 'Haruna' embodies growth and strength, mirroring the robust and resilient character of this exceptional tea. This variety boasts a bold sweetness paired with a refreshing astringency and a cool, clean finish, offering a sophisticated tea-drinking experience.

                                        While Haruna shares its origins with our 'Mio' green tea, being harvested just two days apart gives each a distinct flavor profile. Haruna is notably sweeter and more pronounced, whereas Mio is revered for its subtle softness. Both teas invite a delightful comparison to find your favorite.

                                        Brewing Haruna is straightforward, but for the best experience, we recommend a teapot designed for fukamushi-cha. Proper brewing temperature and timing are crucial to capture the tea's essence. Packaged in nitrogen-filled bags to maintain freshness, each 100-gram package promises exceptional quality and flavor.

                                        Explore the unique characteristics of Shizuoka Sencha Haruna and delight in its exquisite taste and aroma.
