What makes Japanese Green tea so special?
Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan
Why is Shizuoka Special?
Shizuoka has a unique climate compared with most of Japan, it never get’s very cold and soon warms up in the Spring. The water is very pure as the streams flow from Mount Fuji.
Sincha - first crop
Green tea is harvested many times during the season but the first cut is always the best, it has the best taste and has the highest amount of beneficial properties. No, our tea is 100% green tea unlike many tea’s that you see in supermarkets.
Mount Fuji sells the highest quality green tea, carefully picked and dried using the experience and knowledge handed down from father to son.
The Mount Fuji Tradition
our own farm
We do not sell third parties branded tea. Our tea’s have been carefully selected by our own farm office and then packed in our own packets, this guarantee’s you the best quality green tea.
All the tea from the first cut is stored in such a way that all the goodness remains as if it has just been cut (it is stored in large volumes under controlled conditions which you can not do with small packets) Our green tea is packed on a weekly basis so that it arrives to you as fresh as possible.
Never use boiling water. The best way is to use a Japanese teapot with a mesh at the base of the spout. This stops the tea leaves from going into the cup and means all the tea that you pour will be the same. The best way to serve is to pour a little in each cup then repeat this again in reverse (3 times for normal cup) this ensures that each cup has exactly the same taste.
