Green Tea

Thought to be the oldest cultivated plant in the world, tea is enjoyed in every corner of the globe.  Green tea is the favored style in Japan with its delicate color and subtle aroma.  
We carry a large selection of types and grades to match our customers tastes and needs.  Starting with the ultimate grade of Shincha (first harvest tea) from Kagoshima prefecture; to Sencha (popular everyday tea); to Bancha (coarsest variety); to the ever popular Genmaicha (a blend with roasted wholegrain rice) and its signature roasted flavor.  
The coarser Bancha often has many twigs and stems where most of the tannin in tea is found.  This results in a more bitter flavor whereas the finer Shincha with only the leaf present is much smoother and richer in taste.
