Uji Green Tea

uji green teaUji Green Tea - Uji was an important stop along the road between Nara and Kyoto, and was the setting for the world's oldest novel, The Tale of Genji (源氏物語 Genji Monogatari). In order to get to either Kyoto or Nara, this bridge in Uji was crossed.

To the left you can see a copy of an original print of the famous bridge that crosses the Uji river, and next to it is the Tsuen tea shop. After 850 plus years of being in business, the Tsuen tea shop continues to operate at the same location and remains the oldest tea shop in Japan.

                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.

                                                              Discover the unique and vibrant Uji Organic Powdered Sencha, a distinct departure from matcha but equally esteemed for its health benefits. Grown under the full sun in Uji, this powdered sencha captures the essence of the first harvest, resulting in a green tea with a slightly more astringent flavor and maximum antioxidant properties.

                                                              Unlike traditional sencha, this tea is finely ground into a talcum-like powder, making it incredibly convenient to use—no teapot necessary! Simply mix 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of the powder (included with the package depending on your cup size) in hot water for an instant, healthful green tea drink. This versatility makes it a popular addition to shake mixes, offering a quick and easy way to incorporate the benefits of green tea into your daily routine.

                                                              Certified 100% organic by JAS/JONA, our Uji Organic Powdered Sencha ensures purity and sustainability. Try it today and experience the potent health benefits and distinct taste of this exceptional powdered green tea.
