In Japan, farms harvest green teas at exact times to produce a range of tastes and flavor balances. Sencha Hanase, a very popular steamed green tea in Japan, is plucked in mid spring for a medium astringency and light taste. The intensely deep green leaves resemble pine needles and produce a fresh flavor with hints of newly mown grass and sea mists.
Try making this as a cold-brew iced tea by steeping the leaves in the fridge for a few hours.

This is probably one of the most easy-to-drink and good-for-any-occasion offerings. Soba Cha is exactly what the name translates to - Buckwheat Tea. The buckwheat is roasted to perfection and packed with health benefits, without any caffeine. When steeped, soba is an inviting, aromatic drink that has a fresh baked, nutty, toasty flavor. It is mild and refreshing and can be steeped long without becoming unfavorable. And of course, it's gluten-free!
Buckwheat is full of antioxidants which help with digestion, promote heart health and boost the immune system, among other things. Please note that some people may have allergies to buckwheat.
Try this one iced in the summer or when you need a little extra comfort. It's a tea that makes you feel like you're getting a good hug.

For those who make a lot of Japanese green tea, this is the pot for you. It has been designed specifically for brewing fukamushi, or deep steamed tea. The process for making fukamushi breaks down the leaves into much smaller pieces, bringing out a vivid green color and intense flavor. However, in typical teapots the particles will easily sneak through the spout and even in other kyusus the tea can clump towards the spout, decreasing the rapidness of the pour and increasing the steep time. For this reason, the spout is located at the inner bottom of the pot, below the mesh. This way, as the tea pools at the front of the pot while pouring, the water can still escape below.
This particular kyusu is a beautiful off-white and holds about 250ml, or 8oz. It has a modern, yet classic style and will fit in perfectly with an array of different teaware.
*TIP: Never put these pots in the dishwasher and clean well after each use to prevent the mesh from clogging.*
