Our sencha green tea is produced in a foggy mountainside of Uji-Tawara Town in Kyoto,
and made from tea leaves grown
with only natural organic fertilizer and no agricultural chemicals or pesticides.
The combination of the organic green tea leaves
and flavorfully roasted brown rice is just superb.
Enjoy the excellent aroma!
Here are 3 reasons why the tea grown in Uji-Tawara Town is high in quality.
1. The sun rises and sets earlier than other regions, for Uji-Tawara Town is deep in the mountains.
2. The autumn and winter there are so foggy, and the humidity level is perfect for tea leaves.
3. The soil of Uji-Tawara Town is calcareous, and well-drained.

How to Store:
Store the tea leaves in a cool, dark place in airtight containers such as airtight glass jars, for tea leaves are very sensitive to the influence by the temperature, humidity, or light.
Also, tea leaves tend to absorb odor, so please be careful when stored in the refrigerator.
