Add to my notebook

This is a unique lot of Japanese green tea was carefully plucked and processed on the island of Kyushu, in the Yame prefecture of Fukuoka. The expertise of this new producer has made this year's Sencha a favourite of the team.

The dark green of the leaves, the depth of the vegetal notes and the smooth texture that coats the mouth recall the taste of Gyokuro. Smooth and soft, its slightly fruity finish will satisfy the taster in search of finesse.

Tenmoku Cup | Iris

Beneath the delicate glaze, the density of this clay makes it ideal for serving high temperature teas. 

Grand cru

Gyokuro Tamahomare

Three weeks before hand harvesting, shade structures which filter out up to 90% of sunlight are placed over the tea to develop what is commonly called in Japan "the taste of the shadows. The result is a tea weak in tannins, highly complex and aromatic.

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.
