Gyokuro Shuin

This multi award-winning Gyokuro is very representative of shade teas from the Uji region. Three weeks before the manual harvest, the tea bushes are covered and up to 85% of the sun's rays are filtered out to help create what the Japanese refer to as the "taste of the shade". The result is a highly aromatic and complex tasting tea that contains very little tannins. The vegetal character evokes marine flavours of salt and iodine (fresh wakame seeweed) and green vegetable (spinach, swiss chard, and cooked celery) notes. The soft green liquor is bright and has a lingering delicate and herbaceous …

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. Extra smooth by virtue of its velvety texture and delicate fragrances of snow peas, water chestnuts and corn salad, this tea, with leaves of intense emerald green, will delight you with its finesse and depth. The quintessence of Japanese teas.

Hojicha Isagawa Organic

A well balanced blend of leaves and stems roasted to its characteristic ochre colour. Its crystal clear, brick-red liquor is smooth and silky, giving generous and comforting aromas of hardwood, toasted cereals and hazelnuts. Among the classics of Japan, this everyday tea is often offered after a meal.

Kabusecha Surugawase

Produced by Asami Ito, the only woman producer in Shizuoka, this Kabusecha Surugawase shows an incredible vitamin concentration, like only the richest Japanese teas can offer. Dense bright green liquor promises an intense aromatic experience.

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. Its infusion, vegetal in character, is delicately sweet and velvety. Notes of spinach, peas and cashew blend leaving a persistent pleasantly marine aftertaste.
