Sencha Koshun Organic

This sencha from Shizuoka region comes from a rare cultivar called Koshun and is known for its intense floral bouquet. The infusion of its large beautiful leaves produces a full and silky liquor, slightly tangy, evoking sorrel. Rich aromas of white flowers (lilies), citrus zest and almond coexist with its herbaceous character. Well balanced, this tea offers a remarkably long persistence.

Sencha Ashikubo Organic

This tea comes from the magnificent Ashikubo valley and has undergone a long drying process. What results is a clear, mild liquor that is slightly fruitier and toastier than other generally more herbaceous senchas. Secondary aromas of corn, mango, hazelnuts and parsley make it an ideal tea for anyone starting to discover Japanese teas.

Kamairicha Organic

From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This type of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness. The liquor has a pleasant nutty aroma and a flavor similar to chestnuts with a slightly sweet and citrusy after taste. Great combination of smoothness and intensity.
