Add to my notebook

Here is a "Precious Dew"  from the Shizuoka region produced from the Samidori cultivar, often used to make Gyokuro and Matcha.

The dry leaves display the characteristic depth of shade-grown teas, with their dark hue and intoxicating smell of raspberry.

The delicately sharp liquor is smooth and is accompanied by vegetable accents of spinach and sunflower seed. Exquisite!

Kabusecha Takamado

Grown and processed in the region of Uji in Japan, this "shade-tea" is of great finesse. Shade structures which block up to 70% of the light are placed over the tea plants two weeks before harvest in order to soften the leaves and increase the chlorophyll concentration.

Gyokuro Shuin

This multi award-winning Gyokuro is very representative of shade teas from the Uji region.

Sencha Yame Organic

This organic Sencha green tea comes from Mr. Iguchi Yozoru’s gardens in Kurogi village, near Yame. Taste wise, it presents the typical elegance of Kyushu Island’s (south of Japan) steamed teas.
