Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America is a traditional Jinja Shinto Shrine located near Seattle, WA. Not only do they have there own kickass Sake but this high quality Sencha. A friend of mine brought up a bag of this from his stay at the shrine. This has a beautiful sweet aftertaste and really bright Umami. Whatever that means. ;)

They grow their own sencha?!

No they Import the Sencha from Chado En in Japan, and some place in Oregon makes the Sake for them.

Sounds like my kind of shrine. =)

I know which place makes the sake. It’s about a thirty-minute drive from my house.

To truly enjoy a great cup of tea, we should be there with the tea-not off thinking about the past or the future…even what we will say about the tea.
