      Chiran Organic Sencha

      From the first harvest, a very special sencha from Nishimoto, Chiran, Minami-Kyushu, in Japan’s Kagoshima Prefecture. This wonderful tea was grown and certified organic. A blend of Yabukita, Yutaka Midori, Asatsuyu and Kanayamidori breeds. Deeply steamed, it has an exceptional green color and is very flavorful and aromatic.

        I have found this years organic Chiran seems to be best when brewed at a lower temp or it developes some bitterness. I don’t know if it is due to weather conditions this year. I am also not getting an oceanic/seaweed quality which is why I’ve been favoring Chiran the last three or so years. I found the same to be true with another vender this year.

        This is excellent tea. I wish I could be more articulate with describing this tea but you will not be disappointed! I go to bed at night excited to wake up to have this tea!

        Been drinking this for years, having it brought from Japan by a relative - and finding allows us now to never go without. Too bad about the problems with shipping to Canada which raises the cost but it's still worth it.

        This is one of my favorite teas as far as quality and value. Will keep buying it.

        This is by far the best green tea I have ever had. It completely ruined me for other teas, I cannot go back and drink tea from a bag or restaurant anymore. I even bring some with me when I travel and go out.

        Great sencha. Nice dark green colour, strong flavour and taste. I prefer to brew it with a little lower temperature than recommended. One of my favorite senchas.
