Types of Japanese Green Tea
Sencha is healthy, aromatic, and delicious. Most Japanese green tea is sencha.
Despite its reputation as a "common" tea sencha is highly variable in quality and price.
Sencha is dried after steaming and, when dry enough, rolled into a variety of shapes until it is completely dry.
A rich, invigorating and delicious tea.
The color is enhanced by covering the plants shortly before the harvest. After harvesting the leaves are rolled and dried naturally.
Gyokuro is slightly sweeter than sencha and is famous for its crisp, clean taste.
Gyokuro is steamed, then the stalks are removed. The leaves are dried, rolled and twisted into elegant shapes.
Specially prepared gyokuro leaves (Tencha) are ground into a super-fine powder, and that powder is what is known as matcha.
An excellent morning tea, or an energizing beverage during the afternoon.
Our ceremonial grade matcha comes from Uji.
This region is famous in Japan for producing the highest-quality matcha!
Japanese Green Tea Cultivation
Most Japanese green teas are made from elegantly handled leaves, and much of their quality and rich color is due to their style of processing: steaming immediately after harvesting, then air drying.

Japanese Green Tea Online offers teas that are invariably fresh, intensely flavored and rich enough to make several cups!
