Gyokuro Chitose no Homare

Gyokuro tea that competed in the All-Japan Tea Competitive Exhibition

¥6,696 / unit
$ 63.97*

Os******, 2020-10-22 00:49, MEXICO

I haven't really tried a lot of Gyokuros, but it doesn't take more than a passion for tea to recognize a champion. This Gyokuro is one. It is the most delicious I've ever tasted in my life. The liquor of this tea is super bright light greenish yellow; smell of vanilla baked bread, buttered squash with sweet blue corn; thick, creamy, herbaceous flavor with perfect umami. In the aroma, as in the taste, fresh marine notes are distinguished. It would be a great challenge to find a better Gyokuro than this one.

Matcha Chajyu no Mukashi

Top grade matcha tea of Yamamasa Koyamaen

¥5,400 / unit
$ 51.59*

Os******, 2020-10-21 23:30, MEXICO

The aroma of this matcha is impressive from the beginning, it is nature showing itself to the human being. Pumpkin seeds, Colombian coffee beans passing through roasted barley and cocoa beans. Usucha: It thins the wild character of this matcha, but for those who like lighter and softer flavors it is suitable. Koicha: I am passionate about strong and intense flavors, so this form is ideal for me. Surprisingly, going a little beyond the usual amount, let's say 25% more without adding more water than usual for koicha, makes this matcha soften its flavor and intensify the experience. Chajyu no Mukashi is definitely a strong, powerful matcha and very different from the rest of matcha that Sazen offers. Not everyone could get used to this.

What about a Shiboridashi Tea Party?

Rest assured, that your guests will be delighted when you serve them tea from a Shiboridashi teapot. This type of teapot has no handle and it is not only its beautiful shape that makes this tea pot special: thanks to the Tokoname clay and the shallow shape, the taste of tea is softened and becomes even more delicious. Our new Japanese Shiboridashi teapots have high rim that makes these pots ideal for preparing any kind of tea,( even those where high temperature water is used.)
