        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.

                  Fukamushi Sencha Kaoru

                  Introducing the exquisite Fukamushi Sencha "Kaoru," a premier, first flush green tea from the fertile Makinohara district of Shizuoka Prefecture. Crafted from 100% Yabukita leaves, this tea captures the essence of spring with its young, vibrant leaves. "Kaoru" is known for its exceptionally deep green hue and thick consistency, offering an intense, grassy aroma that surpasses typical deep-steamed teas.

                  The flavor of "Kaoru" is rich and enduring, lingering on your palate long after your last sip, making each cup a memorable experience. Brewing is simple, though for optimal results, we recommend using a teapot designed for fukamushi-cha to fully appreciate its depth. To preserve the perfect balance of its flavors, ensure the brewing water is not too hot and the steeping time is just right.

                  Packaged in nitrogen-filled bags to maintain its pristine freshness, "Kaoru" is available in 100-gram packages. Prepare yourself for an unparalleled tea experience with each brew of Fukamushi Sencha "Kaoru."

                      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.
