an everyday morning tea

This Sencha is produced by the Hamada family who has been crafting green teas in Kagoshima, Japan for three generations.

The leaves are processed in a lightly steamed “asamushi” style, which retains their beautiful long and slender aesthetics, in addition to highlighting the tea’s natural oceanic qualities.

Water matters!

Quality water is just as important as quality tea when it comes to your brew. Here's what we recommend:

  • Filtered Water - standard home filtration systems, Brita, Hydros, you name it. Filter that isht!
  • Spring Water - have access to bottled spring water, or have an actual clear spring by where you live? Try brewing with spring water and unlock unique sweetness in your cup!
  • Reverse Osmosis - RO filtration systems are standard for tea and coffee shops, and provide the most consistently great water for brewing any of your favorite drinks. For your home, counter-top as well as below-the-counter systems are great to help step up your water game!
  • Customized Recipes - are you a budding scientist? Check out custom water recipe kits like Lotus and Third Wave Water
