Cold-brewed light steamed sencha allows you to clearly experience the inherent taste and the crisp aroma of green tea leaves.


The Benifuki cultivar we used this time is mostly produced for black tea. Unlike varieties for sencha, it has a relatively high amount of tannins (catechins), which results in a stronger bitterness and astringency when processed into sencha. However, when cold brewing, the bitterness and astringency are subdued, and instead, you get a faint hint of an assam-like aroma, resulting in a delightful iced green tea.


We store our inventory in two locations: Japan and the United States. This is because we currently have a large customer base in America. In the future, we plan to expand our distribution centers to other countries. For details on shipping methods and delivery charges, please click here.

We strive to deliver our products to our customers as quickly and affordably as possible by stocking them in both Japan and the United States wherever feasible. However, for tea leaves that are sensitive to temperature and humidity, we ensure shipping from our temperature-controlled warehouses in Japan to maintain their quality.

Most of the teas we sell now are 15-30g. The reason is that we want you to enjoy exploring a variety of teas. We offer a multi-purchase discount on all teas, 10% for 3units and 20% for 5units at checkout.
If you want to buy a larger amount, such as 3oz at a time, please consider purchasing multiple units. With our multi-purchase discount, it will be more economical for your purchase.
