Kiroku Tea Garden: Sencha


The most popular type of Japanese tea, sencha makes up 80% of all green tea consumed in Japan. Kirokuen's single-origin Sencha is made from the young shoots of tea bushes from the same field and which grow under the direct sunlight.

Kiroku harvest from the same tea garden and never blend between fields. During processing, they sieve the picked shoots straight from the plant to extract the largest, juiciest leaves, which they steam and firmly knead to break down the cell walls. The finished tea is a fine, needle-like dried leaf that has a slight bitterness, a pleasant leafy aroma, and a light, sweet, and fresh tea taste.

About the tea farm:  "Our 4th generation Kirokuen Tea Farm is in the heart of Wazuka, an area whose mountain tea fields and undulating terraced slopes thick with fog make perfect tea-growing conditions. Founded nearly 100 years ago, before cars and farming machinery were available, our mountain fields were cleared by hand by my Great-Grandfather, Kirokuen’s Founder.

Today, we’re in the unusual position of being entirely owned by women. After the death of my father, my mother, myself and my sister took over the running of the farm to continue our family’s legacy, one that began in these fields all those years ago."
