        Sae Midori Organic Asamushi Sencha

        Packed with umami and one of our personal favorites, this delicious green tea comes from Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves.  When we first offered this in 2017, we knew we would buy it the moment we tried it. 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.

        Note - While we will try to get a larger inventory this year, know that this tea usually sells out every year by December.

        Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package

            Glazed Teapot for Green Tea

            A very pretty glazed teapot handcrafted in Tokoname Japan.  Features a very finely meshed removable stainless steel infuser basket for easy cleaning. This teapot is taller rather than wide making it especially suitable for deep steamed (fukamushi) green tea. Of course it will easily handle medium steamed green teas as well.

            Although you could brew gyokuro or light steamed green teas in this teapot in a pinch, due to the nature of the larger leaf particles and the need for room for leaf expansion, a basket type of teapot would not be your first choice for those types of green teas.  We suggest you look in the Asamushi | Gyokuro | Light-Steamed Teapots category of you are mostly brewing those types of teas.

             370ml / 12.5 oz capacity.

                Organic Meiryoku Sencha

                    Tokoname Shiboridashi Teapot

                    Handcrafted in Tokoname Prefecture, Japan. This type of teapot is becoming harder to find over the years. Since gyokuro should be brewed at a lower temperature with double the amount of loose leaf, notwithstanding the fact that gyokuro is usually the most expensive type of loose-leaf green tea available, the use of this teapot is ideal for gyokuro enthusiasts. Multiple small infusions for individual cups. This teapot also works great for light steamed asamushi sencha as well.

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

                    The actual size of this teapot is purposefully small, measuring 10.5 cm wide x 5.3 cm tall (4" x 2") and holding about 100ml / 3.4 ounces of water. The thin gap between the in the inner body of the teapot and the lid eliminate the need for a filter basket.

                    Important to note - This teapot is meant to be used with larger leaf green teas such as light steamed sencha green tea or gyokuro, it is not suitable for anything with a fine leaf particle such as deep steamed green tea (fukamushi-cha). 

                    The craftsmanship of these items is superb, and many not-so-obvious fine details went into making this teapot. Please note that since each of these items are had crafted, they may very slightly from the shown images. So, if you are a regular gyokuro drinker or have ever considered a foray into gyokuro, you will be hard pressed to find a better teapot for it than our handmade shiboridashi and houhin teapots!

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

                        The actual size of this teapot is purposefully small and holds about 60ml / 2 ounces of water. The primary purpose is to hold enough volume to brew a single cup at a time, or perhaps two small cups of gyokuro. The thin gap between the in the inner body of the teapot and the lid eliminate the need for a filter basket.

                        Important to note - This teapot is meant to be used with larger leaf green teas (light steamed green tea) and gyokuro, it is not suitable for anything with a fine leaf particle such as deep steamed green tea (fukamushi-cha).

                            • Asatsuyu Organic Sencha

                              From Kirishima, Kagoshima Japan, a first rate, first flush green tea. Organic sencha "Asatsuyu" is harvested from the first round of young 100% Asatsuyu clone spring leaves. Medium steamed green tea (chumushi), green color with a semi-cloudy clear consistency.  We find this particular asatsuyu to be particularly aromatic and flavorful which is why we chose to include it in our lineup. If you are looking for a healthy, organic, light steamed daily sencha of good value this would be hard to beat. Certified organic JONA/JAS. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen filled bags.

                                  Kirishima Organic Asamushi Sencha

                                  Grown organically in the mountainous Kirishima area of Kagoshima. This is a rather exclusive product, only the tips of the young tender buds are used. Light steamed, this sencha has a medium body and carries a rather intense, nice grassy aroma and an unusually strong umami flavor. Organic Kirishima Asamushi Sencha has a very nicely balanced astringency, aroma and taste. The quality of this tea got our attention and we decided to carry it for those organic green tea enthusiasts who demand the very best. Very delicious, we are confident you will enjoy this product. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

                                  O-Cha.com's package includes 100 grams of tea.

                                                Arita Teapot "Kohiki Budō"

                                                A high quality handcrafted teapot from Arita Japan, Arita Teapot "Kohiki Budou" is perfect for brewing green tea. A small teapot, it would be best used for single cups of green tea. The infuser screen is deep rather than wide and is removable. Suspended off of the floor of the teapot, it allows the wet leaves to drain completely without remaining wet on the floor of the teapot in between subsequent infusions.

                                                    A very nice, basic but well functioning handcrafted teapot in blue from Tokoname Japan.

                                                        Organic Zairai Sencha - From Kirishima

                                                        Sold out until May

                                                        Grown organically in the mountainous Kirishima area of Kagoshima Prefecture. Lightly steamed, organic Kirishima Zairai sencha has a light-yellow green color to it, medium body, and rather unique taste and aroma due to its high iron content.  Zairai means "native" in Japanese and refers to the fact that this tea is from no known modern cultivar and is a close derivative of the original tea plants imported into Japan from China in the 14th century. Since it is "wild" and grown from seed instead of cloning, there is quite a lot of variation between individual plants which gives the leaf a non-uniform leaf structure and characteristics of a blend. Although it is considered a hardier plant to cultivate, the lack of leaf conformity, in addition to lower yield than recent clones do not encourage growers to grow it means you will not come across this unique tea often.

                                                        Very delicious, here's your chance to experience a green tea with characteristics of the teas of old Japan. As with all of our loose-leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

                                                                This organic kabusecha green tea comes from Kirishima City, Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves. Organic Kabusecha is grown for 14 to 20 days under 45% shade before harvest giving it taste characteristics of both sencha and gyokuro. This version comes from the Yabukita clone and is lightly steamed.  The aroma is unusually strong, it has a lovely green color and is quite flavorful.  Brew as you would for sencha.

Since most green teas needs to be brewed at lower temperatures, use this item to aid you in cooling your just boiled water first to exactly where you need it to be.  The smaller size of this water cooler is perfect for a bowl of matcha, a single cup of green tea, or small infusions of gyokuro.

Medium steamed, this sencha has an intense green color to it, medium body, and carries a rather intense, nice grassy aroma and an unusually strong umami flavor.

Unlike the vast majority of green tea tea bags you run across, each of our Gyokuro Green Tea Bags consists of 5 grams of high quality gyokuro leaf (not tea dust).  There are a few gyokuro stems in this tea bag which give the tea a slight astringency but the main flavor is gyokuro all the way.

                                                                                This tea bag comes in a triangular, biodegradable (not plastic or nylon) mesh infusion bag, and will not affect the taste as traditional paper teabags are known to do. A wonderful grassy aroma awaits you when you open the re-sealable package.

                                                                                As of November 2020, the tea bag material used for our Uji green tea bags is composed of a starch based biomass material derived from plants. In addition to the filter, the laminate on the tag and string of this product also incorporate the same environmentally-friendly material.

                                                                                One package includes (16) five-gram high quality gyokuro tea bags, try some today!

                                                                                 

                                                                                Notes on Brewing this gyokuro tea bag

                                                                                To brew this successfully, you do need to take temperature into consideration. A good proceedure is to use TWO cups to brew this tea.

                                                                                1) In your first cup, add hot water (90 ℃ / 194 ℉) and allow it to sit for about a minute. The temperature will drop (see detailed product  images).

                                                                                2) Next, pour the water from the first cup into a second cup. The temperature will drop further (see detailed product  images).

                                                                                3) Lastly, put the teabag into the first cup (which is now pre-warmed) and pour the water from the second cup back into the first cup with the tea bag. 55℃ / 131℉ is the perfect temperature, brew this for 2.5 to 3 minutes (this is longer than for sencha). Place your used tea bag into the second cup for subsequent infusions.

                                                                                                From Uji, near Kyoto, Uji Karigane Gyokuro "Asagiri" is a high quality blend of first harvest gyokuro leaf and gyokuro stems. Gyokuro is shade grown before harvesting, giving it a greener color and sweeter taste. While this is a very delicious green tea in it's own right, since brewing gyokuro takes practice to perfect we feel this green tea also makes a very good introduction to gyokuro brewing at an economical price point. The added stems add a tartness to this green tea and the combination of the two make this one very tasty Japanese green tea.

                                                                                                It is prepared in exactly the same way as regular gyokuro, meaning more leaf brewed at a lower temperature for a longer period of time. Use 10 grams per 300ml or less of water. Be sure to pre-heat teapot and teacups and brew at 55-60C (131~140F) for 1.5~2 minutes: How to Brew Gyokuro - Step-by-Step Instructions!

                                                                                                            Organic gyokuro Haruto is a new variety of gyokuro that was only registered about 6 years ago and is relatively rare on the market. It is only grown by a handful of farms in Kyushu, with our particular gyokuro grown in Shibushi City, Kagoshima Prefecture. It is harvested earlier in the season than typical and the risk of frost damage is high. Because of the difficulty in growing it, the fact that it's a very new and rare breed, it's unlikely you will encounter this very often in the future.  We had the opportunity to carry it this year, we tried it, and we were quite impressed.

                                                                                                            This particular gyokuro is a very high quality green tea that has won awards in Japan. It is a variety with elegant sweetness and umami with dark green tea leaves.

                                                                                                            As you may be aware, there are not a lot of organic gyokuro green teas that are what you would call superb, but Haruto is an exception to that general trend. Yes, the price is a bit more expensive than your regular sencha green tea, but considering that less than 1% of all green tea is grown and harvested as gyokuro, and even more rare an organic one that's this superb, that's just how it rolls with a tea of this caliber. 

                                                                                                            We find this tea to be very delightful with complex, strong umami notes and after taste. Thoroughly delicious when brewed correctly, probably best made in a shiboridashi teapot with care. As with all gyokuro, it is shade grown for about three weeks before harvesting, giving it a greener color and sweeter taste.  Once you learn to make it properly, you wil be hooked for life!

                                                                                                            This is not really a beginner green tea, care must be taken when brewing.

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 makes this a very "old school" gyokuro.

                                                                                                                            Once you learn to make it properly, you will 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.
