Yutaka Midori
Yutaka Midori Tea
Our Price: $14.00

Yutaka Midori is a popular breed for producing Sencha. The abundant sunshine of the south gives 'Yutaka' its vivid flavor, its aroma, and its tinge of astringency. Sometimes this tea is grown shaded from the sun, in which case its sweetness would be heightened. Until open keep refrigerated. After that do not refrigerate. Shelf life for an open can of Yutaka midori is about 2 months.

Oolong Tea
Oolong Tea
Our Price: $14.00

Ohhh Oolong! We love this tea and let us tell you why! Oolong tea has been described as the "Slimming Tea" Described as "Yu Xiang Hui Wei " oolong goes through so many different production stages in order to generate a good flavor and aroma. The tea consists of several dozens of kinds of leaves that have different flavors and aromas due to differences in the leaves, the production area, and the harvest time. Among them, Tie Guan Yin, Shui Xian, and Oolong are well known, and many renowned oolong teas are produced in Fujian Province. Oolong tea produced in the Province is exported throughout the world as the tea that is representative of China.

Our cousin handpicks the leaves from privately owned small farm in Fujian and processes the tea in Japan. As always, they put their own spin on the tea and it is wonderful to start your day with Oolong.

Genmai Cha
GenMai Cha Tea

Genmai Cha

is an exotic Japanese recipe that combines popped rice and green tea. What? Really? That sounds nutty? The flavor is mild and agreeable and combines the fresh grassy flavor of green tea with the nutty flavor of the roasted brown rice. Stored in aluminum tea bags to retain freshness.
The nickname is popcorn tea because a few grains of the rice pop during the roasting process and resemble popcorn.

Matcha
Our Price: $16.00

Matcha -- which is the finely-ground powder of the highest-quality, most revered part of the shade-grown green tea plant called Gyokuru leaves...the very top part of the shade-grown green tea plant then dried to become Tencha. Tencha carefully grown, selected, dried, stone-ground, processed and prepared according to an ancient Japanese tradition, is not your average green tea. Nor does it come in tea bags. Nor do you brew it, boil it, or consume the watery extract from leaves.

When you drink real stone-ground Japanese Matcha, you're not only drinking the arguably highest-quality, most carefully cultivated green tea variety, you're actually consuming it all -- you're eating the whole thing, you're drinking the green tea leaf itself, whole, in powdered form mixed with hot (but not boiling!) water. The powder itself is so rich in chlorophyl (from the shade growing) that it's literally bright green, and when mixed with water it becomes a rich, bitter-sweet, Kermit-colored concoction whose effects you can actually FEEL almost immediately after drinking a cup (or small bowl, if doing it the traditional Japanese way) of it.

Perhaps best known as the traditional, ceremonial drink tightly interwoven with the Buddhist ceremonies and tradition, Matcha's unique effects on the brain were a perfect fit for those monks in Japan preparing to endure 12-hour straight meditation sessions: calming and focusing while stimulating at the same time, it's no wonder that Matcha became integrated into the monks' meditative practices (thanks in large part to the amino acid L-Theanine).
And when you drink real Matcha yourself, you too will...understand.

A word of warning: not all Matcha is created equal! There are many non-Japanese (as well as Japanese) products out there called 'Matcha' that are often nothing more than powdered low-quality green tea, or worse, a mixture of ingredients with artificial green coloring(!). The stone grinding method is also very important, as low-quality Matcha is sometimes 'exploded' instead of stone-ground, reducing the health properties.

How To Prepare Matcha
Simply add 1 gram of Matcha Green Tea Powder to 1 cup of hot water and stir.

For cold drinks, add a small amount of hot water and stir until powder dissolves then add cold water.

If desired add to other health drinks, juices or protein shakes.

Matcha Green Tea Powder can also be used in cooking to flavor and dye foods, use as you require.

For drink or use in cooking.

Sencha Japanese Green Tea
Japanese Bancha
Our Price: $18.00

Japanese green tea is also referred to as Bancha. It is the common green tea in Japan. It is harvested from the same tree as sencha grade, but it is plucked later than sencha. Typically it is lower priced and an everyday tea. The good news is that even as a Bancha this tea is superior to commercial brands. As you can see, the packaging is decorated with vibrant cherry blossoms and the foil package comes with the stay-fresh zipper seal. Although it is an everyday tea, it is still held to high standards and presented to you as a high quality tea. It's a great start to any day and is often a nice tea for the workplace. Impress your clients by offering more than a pot of coffee or a bland tea bag. Have a Soshina tea set on display and show your clients that there's no other place you would rather be than spending time with them enjoying tea from Japan.

* 100 grams per bag

Remember: Keep the temperature low (160-180 degrees), and steep for only 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Japan Sencha has a great lingering aftertaste. The second infusion (30 seconds to 1 min.) is also delicious. Don't steep too long or you may experience a metallic aftertaste. Pay attention to your tea while you make it. This is one area you don't want to multi-task. ENJOY!!

Houji Cha
Our Price: $24.00

Houji Cha is a roasted tea and is naturally low in caffeine. Since it is dark and people mistake it for black tea. The leaves change colors from green tints to red, and the roasted flavors are extracted and predominate. Houji cha infusions have a distinctively clear red appearance and are reputedly low in caffeine as well as catechin antioxidants. Tea lovers say that when they open the bag it smells like chocolate or it smells like coffee. What will you think? Try it and find out that you have added a new tea to your life and an alternative for your friends that may not have venturedinto the world of tea.

How to Prepare
Brew 5-6 minutes infusion produces a dark, intense very roasty infusion on the intensity level of coffee.

Brew 2-3 minutes if you like gentler infusions of tea and if you really are opposed to coffee a shorter brew time makes sense.

Japanese Green Tea
Hiyakabai Japanese Tea
Our Price: $24.00


Our family's organic Japanese green tea is packed in nylon pyramids known as a triangular teabag. We began to import their tea in 2006. Since then this type of packaging has become increasingly popular due to reserving the taste of the tea. We are happy to report our family was one of the first farms to institute the nylon tea bags. The re-sealable package is convenient for frequent use. This tea is fresh & has a nice smooth earthy flavor.

Why A Nylon Teabag?

All of our teabags are made from a modern nylon mesh that does not impart the tea with the taste of paper, glue, bleach, cotton or metal staples. Very organic!

The foil pouch features zipper closure to retain freshness. Enjoy this style of tea hot or cold. Make a pitcher of iced green tea by using 2 - 3 triangle teabags. Watch the teabag expand and slowly absorb the tea as it slowly glides to the bottom of your glass pitcher. We know some of you may need a little sugar and that's fine too. This tea is refreshing and uplifting. Enjoy hot or cold - however our Japanese customers much prefer this tea cold.

*This is our best seller in Japan as well as for our Japanese customers in the US and Canada.

The beauty of this tea is in the aroma and the taste. This tea is patented by our cousins in Japan.
