(Organic Sencha Superior: 100g/3.53oz)
Our Organic Sencha Superior is made exclusively from tea leaves that are fully-grown Ichibancha (the first pick of the year). It is a good everyday tea with a much richer taste and aroma than most other grades of Organic Sencha.
(Organic Genmaicha Matcha-iri: 100g/3.53oz)
This special tea is a lovely blend of Genmaicha (roasted and puffed brown rice and Sencha) and Matcha. Therefore it is very balanced and even more mellow than usual Genmaicha. When brewed as tea, it is light green like Gyokuro. The Matcha brings out the balanced taste and aroma. Of course, this item is made from only Ichibancha (tea from the first harvest of the year) and premium organic Japanese brown rice.
(Organic Houjicha: 100g/3.53oz)
Generally Houjicha is made with various tea leaves, Ichibancha (first harvested), pruned tea leaves, second and third harvested tea and so on. But, like all of our teas, our Houjicha is made from only Ichibancha (first harvested). It is said that Houjicha grown specifically in Ujitawara, where Hibiki-an is located, has a particularly delightful aroma, even when compared with other Houjicha grown in the Kyoto region of Japan.
All the teas in this Organic Tea Tasting Set are certified by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries of Japan.
