New

Kabusecha Miyazaki

A great find this spring, a Kabusecha style green tea from the Miyazaki region. 

New

Sencha Asanoka

From the rare Asanoka cultivar, this sencha was produced by M. Shusaku Oishi, in Miyazaki Prefecture on the warm island of Kyushu in Southern Japan.

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 Mobata

Made in the traditional style of Shizuoka (Japan), this Sencha is one of our best sellers, year after year. 

Previously tended by the late M. Sugiyama, the family gardens are now under the supervision of his wife and son who proudly carry on the passion for the craft. 

Brisk and bold, this tea carries in the mouth a strong vegetal taste with a slight bitterness and a pleasant floral finish, it is an excellent daily companion.

Matcha Okumidori organic (30g tin)

Brisk and fresh in taste, this matcha comes from a certified organic garden in Kirishima, Kyushu Island (South of Japan).

Matcha Uji

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.
