Organic Gyokuro Shibushi, Premium (92/100 p.)


This masterful gyokuro is the perfect tea for those who want to drink a larger quantity of gyokuro. Pleasant umami with a full-bodied and strong flavour. The taste is balanced between a distinctive sweetness and lightly bitter notes, very nourishing.

Organic Sencha Kirishima, Premium (92/100 p.)


A mountain sencha with a well-rounded taste, from the choice terroir of Makizono in Kirishima. The high elevation in the idyllic Kirishima Mountains lends this tea a pleasant taste that is full of character, yet sweet and mild. The leaves of the southern cultivars in this blend yield a full-bodied taste as a result of the superb growing conditions of the terroir as well as the brief steaming of the leaves themselves.

Organic Bancha Kaori, Premium (92/100 p.)


Aromatic and fresh, low caffeine organic bancha made from the rare kariban (刈番) middle harvest before the meban harvest. Custom-made for Sunday by the renowned organic farms Nishi and Nuruki Seicha in Kagoshima. Ideal as an evening tea.
