A deeply green tea reminiscent of summer adventures by the lake. This is our producer's most beloved sencha, with a savory profile characteristic of its famed growing region. Its silken texture makes this tea an elegant brew for Japanese tea connoisseurs.

About the producer
Nestled along the Yabe River on the island of Kyushu, Japan is the village of Yame, an area renowned for redolent green tea and matcha. A region rich in fertile soil, fog-shrouded evenings, and rolling hills, Yame has been perfecting green teas since Buddhist monks brought seeds to the region in 1423. Today, over 1,500 small scale producers craft the region's characteristically sweet teas (known as "Yamecha"), making up just 3% of Japan's tea production. In this region is Hoshino Tea Garden, a tea maker that we represent at Tekuno. Hoshino has spent the past 70 years perfecting their impossibly soft gyokuro, fragrant sencha, and piquant tasting ceremonial grade matcha, inspired by the region's natural beauty and the garden's pursuit of perfection.
