Murasaki Sencha 100g
This beautiful deep green Fukamushi Sencha brings a powerful sweet and hearty flavor to the palate. This tea is strong and full-bodied without lingering on the side of astringency or bitterness. Because this is a deep steamed tea, the liquid becomes a dark cloudy green color with a smoother and milder taste. The tea also picks up a slight fruitiness and sweetness to it. Fukamushi teas are also great as a cold brew, creating a pleasant fruity infusion that is perfect to enjoy outside.
Kasugaen Asatsuyu Sencha 100g
This is a sweet deep steamed sencha from southern Japan. The first steeping is very light and sweet, with a pleasant note of edamame towards the end. The second steeping becomes more bold and full-bodied, with the sweet corn note from the first steeping subsiding and the edamame note beginning to develop more and more. From steeping to steeping, the tea develops more of a vegetal flavor and less of a sweetness. This change leads to a tasting experience that evolves from the first steeping to the third, creating 3 entirely unique cups of tea. You can also continue to brew the tea longer without it losing flavor. Even after the 5th steeping you will notice a vibrant green color and a full-bodied flavor to the tea.
Kasugaen Golden Sencha 100g
This premium sencha is made from the finest tips of the tea plant, delivering plenty of nutrients to the tea. The flavor is powerful, complex and smooth. Normally, a Yabukita sencha would produce more of a grassy flavor, but this one is more well balanced. It begins with a strong savory flavor which later allows space for these powerful edamame and baby spinach notes. The tea has some subtle fruity notes to it, which pick up in the second steeping. In the second steeping of this tea, you will notice a tropical, citrusy note similar to that of grapefruit and banana. This tea is quite an experience, and the well-seasoned sencha drinkers will certainly appreciate both the power and complexity of this tea.

Meet the Farmer
We visited the Farmer, Kawaji-san in November 2019. We got a chance to sit down with him and his family to do a few tastings of the sencha teas he had created. It was clear that a lot of thought went into producing these teas, and the farmer displayed them to us with great pride. He blended different tea varieties together to produce entirely different teas. Ultimately, this is one of the teas we settled on.
About the Farm
This tea comes to us from Hioki City in Kagoshima. It is grown on sea level in a warm, subtropical region in southern Japan with lots of rainfall. The tea in this region is nurtured by fertile volcanic soils and a warm climate.
How to Brew it
Add 5 grams of leaves to the teapot or strainer and then pour in 150ml to 200ml of water (160 degrees Fahrenheit) and let the tea brew for 1 minute. You can brew the leaves 2-3 more times with the same temperature for 20 seconds each
