Japan

Japan mainly produces green teas. Teas are classified in Japan according to their style (Sencha, Gyokuro, Kabusecha, Kukicha, Kamairicha, Bancha, Genmaicha, etc.).

Yakushima Organic

This Japanese black tea took five years of research (and tastings) to find. It is the first representative of this unusual tea style that we found had a true sense of identity. Something both unique and resolutely Japanese in style, adding a new element to our catalogue. Smooth, aromatic and bursting with warm flavours, our Yakushima organic rides a fine line between bold and refined.

Sencha Sakamoto

This small batch of Sencha is a special lot from a section of M. Sakamoto’s garden where Koshun cultivar is grown rather than the traditional Yabukita. The rare beauty of his gardens and the elegance of his teas prove M. Sakamoto a very mindful producer, one who knows how to get the best out of his experimentations.

A small lot to discover  before it's too late!

Sencha Mobata

Produced in the traditional style by Mr Sugiyama, one of our passionate artisans, this sencha reveals a refreshing and well-balanced liquor. Its lively and vegetal taste blends with a slight bitterness and pleasant floral notes. This vigorous and accessible tea is a good daily companion.

Sencha Koshun Organic

This sencha from Shizuoka region comes from a rare cultivar called Koshun and is known for its intense floral bouquet. The infusion of its large beautiful leaves produces a full and silky liquor, slightly tangy, evoking sorrel. Rich aromas of white flowers (lilies), citrus zest and almond coexist with its herbaceous character. Well balanced, this tea offers a remarkably long persistence.

Sencha Kagoshima

From Kagoshima, this asamushi style sencha brings us all the warmth of Kyushu Island’s southern most prefecture (Japan). Expected aromas of fresh cut grass with sweet peas and seaweed nuances all blend in a surprisingly bold umami, leaving behind a long lasting trail of flavours. Very skillfully processed, this green tea wonderfully combines bitter presence and aromatic finesse.

Sencha Ashikubo Organic

This tea comes from the magnificent Ashikubo valley and has undergone a long drying process. What results is a clear, mild liquor that is slightly fruitier and toastier than other generally more herbaceous senchas. Secondary aromas of corn, mango, hazelnuts and parsley make it an ideal tea for anyone starting to discover Japanese teas.

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.

Nadeshiko organic

This innovation from Japan features a tea from a controlled fermentation with an assorted mix of fine khaki leaves. Its dark red liqueur is rich and full, with powerful aromas of dried fruit, bark and roasted cereal. Hints of spices (vanilla) and sugar embellish the flavours of this surprising (and difficult to classify) tea: Pu Er or black tea ?!

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 Taiki Organic (40g bag)

This finely milled green tea, produced by M.Tsutsumi and his team comes from Mie Prefecture.
