From Chado En

Many teas in Japan are harvested by machines. This one is hand sheared with farmers taking several centimeters of the stem below the two or three leafs picked. Next the stem is cut from the leaves and each is processed alone. Once both are fully crafted the stem is added back to the finished leaves. The combination of leaf and stem gives us additional flavor, sweetness and perhaps even greater benefit to our bodies. Enjoyed by those new to green tea as well as “seasoned” drinkers. Compare with our Uji Organic for a warmer more woodsy flavor.

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?!

CMT 雲 山 茶

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.
