Rare Sencha, 3 new teas

Our new line of Senchas were made by four tea farmers known as the Soniga 4. We met these gentlemen four years ago. We tasted teas, they shared their passion and intention for traditional Japanese teas. We stayed in touch and this year we are excited to offer you these remarkable teas.

We begin with 3 Sencha lots which are "Ichiban" or first pick of 2023. By Japanese classing, our lots are known as "steamed Tamaryokucha", a fine grade. As well, we have imported one lot of Houjicha as we know many tea drinkers cherish this traditional roasted tea.
