TEA VARIETIES

Originally farmers grow tea by planting seeds in soil and cultivating the buds. Our first-class varieties of tea are made from cultivars selected based on their excellence. The compatibility with the soil differs from tea to tea, creating unique flavors and aromas for each variety. The following are our five premier teas.

HOW TO INFUSE

Tea tastes better when brewed the right way. Making tea correctly extracts the flavors even more. Try brewing tea by the method below in order to learn how to enjoy Japanese tea.

  1. step-image
    Kettle
    Bring water to boil. Soft water is preferable.
  2. step-image
    3g/Cup
    The recommended amount of leaves is around 4g (one tablespoon) per cup. When preparing more than one cup, multiply the amount by the number of cups. When preparing just a single cup, use slightly more leaves (5g). For more than one cup, use less (3g per cup).
  3. step-image
    Yuzamashi
    70ºC / 158ºF
    Use between 50cc and 70cc of water per cup. Cool boiling water down to the right temperature (around 70 degrees Celsius, 158 degrees Fahrenheit) by pouring water into an empty cup or using a yuzamashi (water cooling pitcher).
  4. step-image
    Tea Pot
    step-image
    Pour Over
    Put the leaves into a teapot and pour water over the leaves. Place a lid on the pot and wait for one minute.
  5. step-image
    Check the Level
    step-image
    Drop to the Last
    After one minute, check the condition of the leaves. When pouring in the hot water, the leaves will first sink down but then rise to the surface once they open up. Then delicately pour the tea into a cup.
  6. One of the key parts of brewing a cup of tea that is full of flavor is to make sure to drain the pot of even the very last drop of tea.
  7. Draining the pot entirely enhances the flavor of the second or third round of brewing.
  8. For the second, third and fourth rounds of brewing, the best water temperature is between 80 degrees Celsius (176 degrees Fahrenheit) and 90 degrees Celsius (194 degrees Fahrenheit). This time the tea is ready soon after you pour in the water.
