A gem that we introduced a few years back is this green tea grown in the countryside part of Nishimoto which is in the northern area of the Chiran tea growing region of Minami Kyushu, Kagoshima. It comes to us directly from a small scale cooperative grower who is passionate about delivering incredibly delicious organic sencha to his customers at an equally incredible price.

This particular high grade makes use of the grower's three highest rated cultivars from his plantation which are Yabukita, Yutakamidori, and the venerable Asatsuyu! An easy drinker, easy to brew, rich & complex tasting, appetizingly aromatic, so sumptuous, and brews up into a deep green liquor color. If you are a deep steamed fukamushi sencha green tea fan, it would be difficult not to like the taste (and value) of this one!
