Japan Shincha Honyama Saitô organic
Honyama known as one of the oldest Japanese tea growing areas is located in the mountains of Shizuoka. Shorter hours of sunshine, clear water from the adjacent rivers and frequent wafts of fog have offered the best conditions for expressive green teas for centuries. In a limited quantity and exclusively for us, Mr. Saitô processed his self-bred cultivar to Shincha impressing with its very own characteristics.

Outstanding Shincha from the mountains of Shizuoka
The Honyama growing area is located in Shizuoka near the Abe and Warashina rivers. As the tea is grown in the mountains, clouds of mist often form thanks to the nearby rivers and rise up to the tea fields. This frequent weather phenomenon causes the tea bushes to be naturally "shaded", forming a milder and sweeter flavour, similar to Kabusecha.
