Organic Gyokuro Shibushi, Premium (92/100 p.)
This masterful gyokuro is the perfect tea for those who want to drink a larger quantity of gyokuro. Pleasant umami with a full-bodied and strong flavour. The taste is balanced between a distinctive sweetness and lightly bitter notes, very nourishing.
Organic Sencha Kirishima, Premium (92/100 p.)
A mountain sencha with a well-rounded taste, from the choice terroir of Makizono in Kirishima. The high elevation in the idyllic Kirishima Mountains lends this tea a pleasant taste that is full of character, yet sweet and mild. The leaves of the southern cultivars in this blend yield a full-bodied taste as a result of the superb growing conditions of the terroir as well as the brief steaming of the leaves themselves.
Organic Bancha Kaori, Premium (92/100 p.)
Aromatic and fresh, low caffeine organic bancha made from the rare kariban (刈番) middle harvest before the meban harvest. Custom-made for Sunday by the renowned organic farms Nishi and Nuruki Seicha in Kagoshima. Ideal as an evening tea.
Premium organic sencha from Kagoshima Prefecture in southern Japan. The tea fields are at 670m elevation in the prime terroir of Makizono in the Kirishima Mountains. Masterful blend of full-bodied southern cultivars and yabukita. Nutritious and ideal for daily enjoyment. 100g. Also available as a 500g bulk package.View more
The 3 Classic Green Teas of Japan
As a result of the type of leaves used and the production process, each variety of green tea has its own individual characteristics. For this basic set we have chosen the 3 teas which we consider the most essential in any Japanese green tea collection. Each is suitable for daily use, and together they are a pleasure to enjoy over the course of the whole day.
- Gyokuro (umami): mornings
- Sencha (bitter): afternoons
- Bancha (alkaline): evenings
