A remarkably complex and deep Sencha from Shizuoka, Japan.

Crafted by Moriuchi-san - one of the most revered tea-masters in Japan on his 200 year old tea garden. The tea is crafted on this tiny estate by Moriuchi-san with his wife and daughter.

This tea goes wonderfully with sweet and savoury food. You might try this tea with buttery shortbread or oily fish like salmon.

A Super Shizuoka Sencha !

This is a very awesome Japanese Sencha. I have enjoyed it both cold brewed and traditionally brewed and the taste is worth every penny in my humble opinion. It tastes almost on a par with a good Gyokuro! I can also say I got a generous number of brews for a sencha too ! The delivery was impressive - it just came through the letterbox - so no worries having to stay in expecting a delivery !

Good stuff !

This is fantastic stuff! (cold brewed or traditionally brewed in a Japanese Kyusu.) The leaves are great and give me a generous 5+ satisfying, flavoursome infusions (5g to 100ml). The flavours are rewarding and change with each infusion. It is almost Gyokuro like for a sencha. It is a most rewarding brew. (I was impressed with the delivery too - as the packaging means it conveniently fits through the letter box so no need to hang about waiting for the postman.)

Superb flavour

I've tried many senchas but this is one of the best i have tried so far. I really recommend this tea for every sencha lover out there, it has a very buttery and round taste!

Truly exceptional

I’ve been trying all the different teas from this wonderful company for years now, and enjoy them all. However I’ve now got my firm favourites, and of these favourites this is my winner. A truly exceptional tea which I originally intended to save for special occasions but now find myself enjoying most days!

Origin & Craft

Located between Uchimaki and Miwa Village in Shizuoka, the Moriuchi Tea Garden has been around since the Edo period. The tea is grown and harvested by husband and wife Yoshio and Masumi Moriuchi.

The gardens are steep and rich, surrounded by forests.  Indeed so precipitous is the incline Mr Moriuchi has built a small monorail to lift them up, and the tea down, from the steepest slopes. They have converted the land to organic farming and our senchas are hand picked and handcrafted.
