Fukamushi Sencha

Fukamushi Sencha

This incredible rich, bright green, evenly graded, vegetal tea is our newest addition from our Japnese tea supliers. Closer in look and flavour to a gyokuro it can be steeped up to 3 times giving a fragrant, refreshing brew each time.

Bancha

Bancha

Late harvest leaves, long and prest flat. Fresh, mild, tangy taste, light cup. Low cafffeine.

Kukicha, roasted, organic

Kukicha, roasted, organic

Mostly twigs and almost no leaves, sometimes referred to as twig tea. Rich, toasty flavour and very little caffeine.

Genmaicha

Genmaicha

Flown directly from the estate in Japan every few months this is a very high quality Genmaicha. Rich, hearty, filling, but fresh tasting this, Japanese "every day" tea this is sencha blended with fire roasted and popped rice. This is an exceptional quality tea superior to any other Genmaicha we have ever tried!

Hojicha, organic

Hojicha, organic

Delightful aroma, lingering, rich flavour. A trully exceptional Japanese roasted green tea grown in the Uji region. The finest Hojicha we've ever tasted. It is delightful hot but we think it also makes one of the most refreshing iced teas.

Mugicha, roasted barley tea

Mugicha, roasted barley tea

Earthy, rch, slightly sweet, filling and refreshing it makes a good substitute for coffee. Not a green tea in any way, just roasted barley but it is a traditional Japanese beverage. Naturally caffeine free.

Gyokuro

Gyokuro

The "champagne" of Japan's green teas who's name roughly translates as "Jade Dew". Each spring tea bushes are shaded before harvest boosting the chlorophyll and reducing the tannin levels in the tea. This results in an exceptionally smooth, gorgeous lemon yellow cup with a refined, sweet, mild flavour and a flowery-green aroma.

Japan Matcha

Japan Matcha

Japanese matcha from the Uji region. Beautiful, bright green color, froths easily, smooth, mellow, sweet taste. Sold only in 1.4 oz sealed bags. It can be whisked into hot water in the Japanese way or blended with hot milk to make a green tea latte. We often put it in the blender with some cold milk and ice. If you would like to know more about the health benefits of matcha and how to prepair it please ask us for our matcha brochure.

Cooking Matcha

Cooking matcha does not have the bright green colour of ceremonial matcha or the rich vegetal flavour. Greenish/yellow colour and a softer flavour at an affortable price.

Gyokuro Karigane

Gyokuro Karigane

Rare and highly valued even in Japan. This is made from the same leaves and through the same process that produces our extraordinary Gyokuro. What's the difference? Where Gyokuro has all the veins from the leaves removed, Karigane is entirely composed of those veins. This means Karigane is very low in caffeine and very high in theanin and other antioxidants. Since the veins only make up only 5-10% of the already rare Gyokuro leaves, only a few pounds of Gyokuro Karigane are produced each year and only in early spring.
