This Sencha, crafted by one of our favorite producers in Nara, is composed of a diverse mix of leaves and yellowish stems.

In infusion, generous aromas of fresh herbs, flower and eggshell emanate from the warm, damp leaves. Its liquor, light and creamy, also features delicious zesty and parsley nuances.

This organic tea, rich in minerals, has a deep and persistent finish.

Cup from Julie Lavoie | Tenmoku

It was in a teahouse in Japan that the potter Julie Lavoie discovered Tenmoku. On seeing the works of Kamada Koji for the first time, she was inspired by the 'starry skies' effect, unique to this glaze. Like a premonition, this idea of meteors had already appeared in her work before this journey.

Gyokuro Shizuoka Organic

The Okabe farmers cooperative in Japan offers us this green tea in the Gyokuro style produced following the covered method of cultivation giving it its characteristic taste from shade.

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 style of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness, exempt from the typical astringency found in Sencha style teas.

Sencha Asanoka

From the rare Asanoka cultivar, this Sencha was produced by M. Kyouko Sata, in Kagoshima Prefecture on the warm island of Kyushu in Southern Japan.
