I have been using this latest acquisition from Hibiki-an for about a week now, and all I can say is that it is absolutely wonderful and produces a beautiful pot of tea. Very quickly it has become my favorite teapot. Its "wabi -sabi" character is also delightfu...(more)

This is an excellent organic houjicha, and far superior to any others I have tried. The flavor is full and round and has an elegant nuttiness and sweetness to it. I have been a customer of Hibiki-an for some years now, and tremendously enjoy their organic teas. This hou...(more)

I posted my first review of Farmer's Shinncha back in 2012 and now three years later just want to mention one more time that this is still a great seasonal offering. Personally, I particularly love the minimally processed character of the tea, and if you love good Japan...(more)

A very fine and pleasant organic sencha. I go out of my way to find good organic teas, and in my opinion Hibiki-an supplies some of the best. This tea really must be very close to the style of tea that was drunk in Japan before the use of modern agricultural methods. ...(more)
