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 Yame Organic
This organic Sencha green tea comes from Mr. Iguchi Yozoru’s gardens in Kurogi village, near Yame. Taste wise, it presents the typical elegance of Kyushu Island’s (south of Japan) steamed teas.
Rich and dense, its emerald green infusion is quite intense. Herbaceous and marine aromas (kale, seaweed) are followed by a mineral presence reminiscent of seashells.

It was in a teahouse in Japan that the potter Julie Lavoie discovered Tenmoku. On seeing the works of Kamada Koji for the first time, she was inspired by the 'starry skies' effect, unique to this glaze. Like a premonition, this idea of meteors had already appeared in her work before this journey.
