In Japan, the important New Year’s holiday is an occasion to gather with family — which of course calls for tea. We release this Obukucha exclusively around the holiday season, as a tea to drink in celebration of the arrival of a new year. Obukucha is a genmaicha that combines the light sweetness of high grade yanagi leaves with the heartiness of roasted rice. Choose this tea for a fuller-bodied genmaicha that is satisfying in the heart of winter.
Sencha is the most popular Japanese green tea for good reason: its crisp, balanced taste and its bright fragrance feel satisfying on any occasion.
Our Kumpu is a high-class sencha blend with an elegant fragrance and a long, beautiful finish. We recommend it to those who enjoy senchas with less astringency and more natural sweetness.
Gyokuro is a green tea that has a unique dew-like aroma, less astringency, and a thick character. Just like matcha, this tea comes from fields that are covered in shade before harvest. The shade-cultivation is what gives gyokuro its soft, natural sweet character.
Rich in umami, luscious, and virtually void of astringency, Ippoen is a premium gyokuro that is a favorite among tea fans.
