Japanese Green Tea Shop
The first online shop to offer exclusive teas shipped fresh from Japan. Quality has always been our top priority.
Gyokuro, sencha and matcha from Uji, organic sencha and matcha from selected growers in Kyushu. Fresh teas are packed and sent to us daily. A one week supply is kept on hand so we can usually ship within one business day.
Types of Japanese Green Tea
Gyokuro, sencha, and matcha all vary greatly in quality.
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 has a crisp, clean taste.
Gyokuro is steamed, then the stalks are removed. The leaves are dried, rolled and twisted into elegant shapes.
Most Japanese green tea is sencha.
Sencha is dried after steaming and, when dry enough, rolled into a variety of shapes until it is completely dry.
Sencha is aromatic and delightful!
An excellent morning tea, or an energizing beverage later in the day.
Matcha is specially prepared leaves that are ground into a super-fine powder.
Our ceremonial grade matcha comes from Uji.
This region is famous in Japan for producing the highest-quality matcha!
Japanese Green Tea Cultivation
There are two tea harvests every year. First-harvest teas taste better and contain more catechins.
Only the highest-quality first-harvest teas were selected for our catalog.
