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. To this day Uji remains an extremely important center for all things green tea in Japan and is known for it's high quality products.

    • Shincha!

    It's our pleasure to be able to offer the outstanding Uji Shincha Kirameki.   While most of our teas have both a shincha and non-shincha version, this is the one tea we release just once a year during shincha season, and when when supplies run out, it will not be available again for another year.  Our supplier, the Tsuen teashop in Uji Japan, will then released a very similar product under the name Ujibashi San no Ma when shincha season has finished, but they are not the exact blend.

This item uses select 100% Uji grown, Yabukita leaves from the first harvest and is lightly steamed sencha (asamushi). It yields a very wonderful nice grassy aroma and is a very classy green tea.

    • A Tsuen Tea!
    • Rare!

    It's our pleasure to be able to offer an especially outstanding, Limited Edition light steamed green tea  ("asamushi-cha") from the Watsuka growing region near Uji.  We exclusively obtain this from Japan's oldest teashop, Tsuen Tea. This item is 100% Yabukita leaves from the first harvest.  Seldom do we come across a light steamed green tea with needles of this quality and appearance. When brewed, it yields an intense flavor. Although you could brew this in any type of Japanese teapot, you will get get the best out of it by brewing in either a houhin or shiboridashi teapot.  

    Yes, we realize it is rather expensive - obviously a lot of hard work went into producing this gem of a green tea.  However, our job has always been to first and foremost obtain the best green teas possible for our customers with pricing being a secondary (but still important) consideration. For that reason, we offer this in 30 gram packaging.  To keep costs down, this is one of the few green teas we carry in which we will not be able to offer bonus points.  Here is your chance to try some of the best of what Japan has to offer in Japanese green tea.

    Brewing notes: We have successfully brewed this at 1 gram & also at 1.2 grams per 1 oz (30 ml) of water at both lower and higher temperature ranges for 1.5 minutes and did not find it to be particularly fussy at either range of the spectrum.

    • A Tsuen Tea!
    • Rare!

    "Hana no Kaori" translates as "Floral Aroma", which is what this sencha is all about. A rather unusual offering for you, Uji sencha "Hana no Kaori" was obtained through one of the growers of the Tsuen tea shop in Uji Japan. What's different about this tea? This unusual offering became "slightly" fermented. In the case of Chinese oolong tea, this of course is done on purpose. In the case of Japanese sencha, fermentation is normally something to be avoided as the tea will usually no longer be "green" anymore. In the case of "Hana no Kaori" this tea not only fermented slightly, but it also keeps it's very beautiful green color. The result was not only a beautiful green colored sencha, but one with a rather strong oolong-like floral notes and taste. All who have tried it have been impressed with the delicious taste of this sencha green tea - we could not pass it up!

    We have a limited amount of this item. If you are a green tea fan who also enjoys oolong tea, we think you'll really appreciate this tasty green tea. Here is your chance to try a very high quality Japanese green tea with unique floral, oolong-like floral characteristics, shipped directly to you from Japan's oldest tea shop on the banks of the Uji river. An extremely delicious green tea!

    From the first harvest in Uji. Kabusecha is grown in the shade for 14~20 days before harvest under 45% shade, giving it characteristics of both sencha and gyokuro. A sweeter, less astringent taste than regular sencha, it is a lovely green color with a clear, not-so-cloudy. A very pleasant, refreshing green tea. Brew as you would for sencha, not gyokuro.
