  • Mogake Hōhin Teapot

    • Unique!
    • Handcrafted!

    Handcrafted in Tokoname, Aichi prefecture Japan, this Mogake style Hōhin teapot was made with gyokuro and light steamed asamushi sencha brewing in mind. The teapot was wrapped with seaweed, causing the salt from the seaweed to oxidize with the clay making a unique pattern on the teapot. Since gyokuro should be brewed at a lower temperature and with double the amount of loose leaf (usually the most expensive green teas available), the use of this special set is ideal for gyokuro enthusiasts, allowing multiple infusions from the same gyokuro leaf.

    This teapot matches perfectly with our mogake yuzamashi water cooler and mogake teacup.

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

    The teapot is intentionally made very small, holding just 135 ml of water. The lid fits the inside of the teapot wall perfectly. There is a very well made and thought out spout and the pour is smooth.  This teapot is suitable for any gyokuro or light steamed green tea.  You could probably use it with most medium-steamed green teas though you might get some clogging on the ceramic inner spout.  Not suitable for deep steamed green tea as the fine, dust-like leaf particles.

    The set is intentionally made very small, holding just 60-80ml of water. The lid fits the inside of the teapot wall perfectly and is tilted to whatever degree the brewer would like the gap to be to pour efficiently, eliminating the need for a filter basket. With perhaps the exception of deep steamed green tea, this tea set could also be used for other green teas.

  • Shirakawa Gyokuro

    • A Tsuen Tea!
    • Rare!

    The highest grade of gyokuro we sell from Japan's oldest continuously operating tea shop, Tsuen in Uji near Kyoto. Note that Uji Shirakawa Gyokuro is a very limited edition item, we are supplying it because the opportunity to offer it presented itself to us and we strive to supply the best of the best. We do not recommend that you purchase this rare item unless you have previously practiced brewing gyokuro. O-Cha.com is honored to offer this superb green tea supplied to us from the Tsuen family who have operated their teashop from same location on the banks of the Uji river since 1160.

    Grown in nearby Shirakawa, this is an extremely high quality gyokuro. Gyokuro is shade grown before harvesting, giving it a greener color and sweeter taste. Less that 0.5 % of all green tea harvested in Japan ends up as gyokuro, and among those, this gem is near the top. This green tea is hand-picked (rare - see video tab) and is pure "Gokou" cultivar. Another unique aspect is that unlike the majority of gyokuro grown today, the shading is not done with modern shade cloth but instead using traditional straw and reed screening. The combination of hand-picking and traditional shading methods make this a very "old school" gyokuro.

    Once you learn to make it properly, you wil be hooked for life! Since this is a connoisseur grade of gyokuro and is not considered a beginner's green tea, make sure to read our how to brew gyokuro page as it is brewed differently than sencha.

    Because this is a rather rare and expensive, we are offering it at this time in 30 gram packaging

  • Light steamed Yumesuruga sencha from Shizuoka

    • Rare!
    • Unique!

    Unfortunately, this fantastic green tea has sold out for 2020 :(

     

    This light steamed sencha green tea is produced by a well-known tea master located in Tenryu, Shizuoka and of course is harvested from the first round of young leaves. This is a rather rare batch and probably won't last very long.  Yumesuruga is a somewhat new clone which was registered 2014 and has only becoming available recently.  This sencha was harvested from three year old young tea bushes, it's leaves are beautifully twisted needle shaped.  It has a crispy nutty overtone, rich, silky mouthfeel.  As with most light steamed green teas, some of the taste is subtle but it has a nice umami and lingering aftertaste.  This tea is a masterpiece light steamed green tea.

    Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package

    • Unique!
    • Handcrafted!

    Handcrafted in Tokoname, Aichi prefecture Japan, this Mogake style yunomi teacup was made with gyokuro and light steamed asamushi sencha brewing in mind. The Japanese cermamic teacup was wrapped with seaweed, causing the salt from the seaweed to oxidize with the clay making a unique pattern on the teapot. This cup matches our Mogake shiboridashi, Mogake Hōhin, and Mogake yuzamashi water cooler perfectly.

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

    The cup is intentionally made very small, holding just about 40 ml of water, perfect for sipping perfectly made expensive gyokuro.

  • Sae Midori Organic Asamushi Sencha

    • Popular!
    • Unique!

    This green tea comes from Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves.  When we offered this for the first time in 2017, we knew we would buy this one as soon as we tried it and sure enough it had sold out by December. 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.

    Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package

  • Fukamushi Sencha Kaoru

    • Popular!

    A first rate, first flush green tea. Harvested from the first round of young spring leaves, this 100% Yabukita green tea comes from the famous Makinohara tea growing district in Shizuoka Prefecture. Very green and very thick. Fukamushi Sencha "Kaoru" has a somewhat more pronounced grassy aroma and taste compared with the average deep steamed green tea and the taste remains on the palate for an extended time.

    An overall easy brewer (a teapot for fukuamushi-cha is recommended, however). Be sure to not brew too hot, for too long, or with too much leaf. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, freshly packaged in nitrogen filled bags.

    Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package.

  • Kawane Wa-Kōcha

    • Rare!
    • Unique!

    Kawane Wa-Kōcha is Japanese Black Tea grown in Kawane town (川根町), located in the Haibara District of Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. While this area is notable for its production of mainly green teas, it may be surprising to know there are numerous growers who specialize in producing black teas as well. This particular version is produced by a rather old and famous company founded in the 8th year of the Meiji period (ca 1875). The tea blender is a 73 year old tea master and uses high quality techniques in the orthodox manner similar to the way traditional Darjeeling is made, but with a Japanese touch. This tea has characteristics similar to both Darjeeling and Ceylon tea, has a strong aroma, a smooth flavor, and has hints of Japanese sweetness. Kawane Wa-Kōcha can be served straight or with milk and sugar (usually on the last infusion). The breed is a blend of Zairai and Benifuki clones. Unlike most Japanese produced black teas which usually come from the second harvest, due to the higher latitudes this tea is grown at, the producer blends this black tea with both first and second harvests, the ratio changing according to year and conditions. The resulting tea results in a more bold flavor than normally encountered with other Japanese black teas.

    To brew this particular tea, unlike with traditional green tea, you can achieve best results by bringing fresh water to nearly the boiling point in a kettle (instead of an air pot or water heater), and brewing two teaspoons per 8 ounces of water for 3 to 4 minutes.

    If you also enjoy black tea in addition to Japanese green tea, consider adding this rare item to your shopping cart today!

    Package includes a full 100 grams of high quality Japanese black tea.

  • Persimmon - Green Tea Soap

    We came across this rather unique Japanese health related product recently. Similarly Japanese made products offered to customers outside of Japan are usually priced at many times what we offer this fantastic product for. 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.
