Matcha Uji

A delicious matcha with an excellent quality / price ratio brought to us by the Osafumi brothers, second generation producers. This matcha comes from the mythical region of Uji, near Kyoto (the former capital of Japan), and more precisely from Ujitawara, hometown of Nagatani Soen, inventor of the sencha tea style. Its powerful and tasty emulsion offers a velvety texture and a slightly bitter-sweet flavor, with notes of oily grass and snow peas. A touch of gentle iodine tickles the palate, overshadowing everything. 

Matcha Sora

Rich with the knowledge of 16 generations of tea producers, Mr Marukyu offers us this amazingly accessible and addictive matcha.

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.

Sencha Tsukigase Organic

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

Bancha Shizuoka

A flat-leaf Japanese green tea from the region of Shizuoka. Contains very little caffeine. Gives a sweet liquor with very little astrincency. A perfect introduction to Japanese tea.

Gyokuro Okabe

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

Gyokuro Shizuoka Organic

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

Sencha Koshun Organic

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