Kabusecha Takamado

Grown and processed in the region of Uji in Japan, this green "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.

Sencha Koshun Organic

This Sencha from Shizuoka region in Japan comes in from a rare cultivar called Koshun and is known for its intense floral bouquet.

Gyokuro Okabe

Unique in Japan in the world of tea, the Gyokuro (Precious Dew) style is the result of a process to create shade for the tea plants for a few weeks. The deprivation of light creates more difficult conditions for the plants whose molecular structure changes to make room for sugars, amino acids and aromatic compounds. The leaves will offer a less bitter liquor.

Gyokuro Shuin

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