How to choose green tea

“Sashima tea” has been around since the end of the Edo period.

"Sashima tea" is a historic tea producing region that was first exported to the United States in Japan 150 years ago.

Izumi is a rare variety of tea that was developed over 60 years ago for export, but has been forgotten by the tea industry over time. Thirty years ago, the owner of our farm was fascinated by Izumi, which has a variety of expressions, and began cultivating it as he saw its potential as a fermented tea.

Enjoy the rich aroma and deep flavor of tea leaves grown in the fertile land and temperature differences.

  • ①Sweetness

    Green tea's sweetness exists as part of the overall flavor balance, rather than directly like sugar. It harmonizes with umami, bitterness, and other flavor components to create the mellow and complex taste characteristic of green tea.

  • ②Astringency

    Astringency is an element that gives tea complexity and depth. This astringency is deeply involved in why tea becomes a luxury item. In addition to astringency and bitterness, other flavor components (such as umami and sweetness) interact to create a multilayered taste.

  • ③Taste

    The umami flavor of green tea comes from theanine, which is one of the umami components and is unique to green tea. It creates a deeply satisfying taste that makes you feel relieved and helps relax your mind and body.

  • ④Fragrance

    There are over 200 types of substances that give tea its aroma, and they vary depending on the type of tea plant, environment, and tea production method. Comparing drinks will make the individual features stand out more. Please find your favorite cup.

  • ① Light fermentation

    By retaining the shape of the tea leaves and using ``shallow fermentation,'' we are able to create Japanese black tea with a particular focus on ``fragrance.'' The beautiful golden light blue color and the fragrant, elegant floral scent are impressive. The aroma and body (richness of taste) that deepen with the passage of time are also noteworthy.

  • ② Deeper fermentation

    Black tea that has undergone deep fermentation has a deep body (richness) and a perfect harmony of the three elements of taste, aroma, and light blue color. Especially high-quality black tea is characterized by a rich aroma reminiscent of ripe fruit, and its overwhelming presence enhances your taste buds. The unique flavor created by deep fermentation gives you a sense of the depth of black tea, and you can enjoy its richness with every sip.
