Indulge in the sweet and distinct aroma of sencha green tea

Introducing our premium tea made from the recommended variety "Sayamakaori" grown in Saitama Prefecture. This light-steamed tea carefully adjusts sunlight exposure by covering the young leaves with a black net. Harvested as the very first pick (Ichibancha), these tender buds undergo approximately 6 hours of sun-drying after plucking which goes under a withering process.This exceptional sencha is a testament to the rich history and expertise found in the renowned tea-producing region of Sayama, one of Japan's three major tea origins (Uji, Shizuoka, and Sayama).

Made by the renowned top skilled tea master Nakajima-san of Onishi-en

Cultivated on the historic Oonishi-en estate, which boasts a legacy spanning 250 years, this sencha is hand roasted by a tea master adorned with the title of "Eisei-chasei (Eternal Tea Saint)." Having claimed the top position in the National Hand-Rolled Tea Appraisal Contest an impressive eight times, this tea master is widely recognized as Japan's foremost expert in the art of tea. 

Under the leadership of the skilled artisan Nakajima-san, Oonishi-en continues to uphold traditional techniques, producing the esteemed "deep-steamed tea" that Sayama tea is celebrated for. Immerse yourself in the epitome of quality with tea crafted by Japan's finest tea master.
