Win a Set of Gyokuro and Issaku Japanese Green Tea Today!
Issaku Sencha (Global Tea Champion 2017)
Issaku is the highest-grade tea available from Japanese Green Tea Company, and, due to the complex and long process of creating the tea, only a limited quantity is available to produce every year. This tea is rare, even in Japan to enjoy.
Gyokoro Shaded Imperial Japanese Premium Green Tea
Gyokuro is a special type of green tea shaded from the sun for 20 days with specially made mats which allows the caffeine levels to increase in the leaves, in addition to allowing the amino acids to get stronger, producing a sweeter and stronger flavor. Because of the cultivation process, the leaves have a very particular odor that is impossible to confuse.
About Japanese Green Tea Company
Japanese Green Tea Company sells authentic, healthy Japanese Matcha & Green Tea harvested from sugarcane soil. In addition to the Global Tea Championship, their tea won the Japanese National Tea Award in 1974, 1975, 1979 and 2010.
The farmers carefully cultivate crops of thick grasses around their tea trees and sugarcane syrup so that they provide added nutrients directly to the soil as a compostable blanket every winter. The farmers also collaborate with researchers from Shizuoka University to study soil and the impacts its sweetness has on the taste of the tea it cultivates.
This labor-intensive process protects each plants’ delicate roots while giving each tree the nutrition it needs to grow, ensuring that only the best leaves make it into their tea. This longer processing method leads to a bolder flavor filled with the health-enhancing amino acid theanine with smoother a mouthfeel, a subtle hint of sweetness and is far less astringent.
Japanese Green Tea Company is the only US-based company to source tea directly from Arahataen Green Tea Farms in the Shizuoka prefecture in Japan. Shizuoka has been the center of green tea cultivation in Japan for centuries, and the region’s intense sunlight and intermittent fog gives each batch of tea its distinctive flavor.
