About this tea

The Nishi family is celebrated throughout Japan for their exquisite quality green teas, dedication to organic cultivation techniques and their masterful cultivar selection. The Nishi family has been one of our strongest partners for organic sencha since 2006. Our Nishi First Flush is the premier style of mid-steamed sencha from the Nishi gardens blended from several different cultivars to create a bright, aromatic and lively character. The "first flush" refers to the first harvest of the spring season when new tea buds emerge and tea plants awaken from their winter dormancy. At this time, the bushes sprout up with great vigor and yield the richest, most balanced teas. Our Nishi First Flush Sencha presents a deep umami flavor and smooth, juicy mouthfeel.

Renowned throughout Japan as pioneers of organic green tea cultivation, the Nishi family has been our strongest partner for organic sencha and organic matcha since 2006. Every year, the Nishi family produces exclusive allocations of organic sencha and organic matcha for us. This Nishi family grows more than a dozen different green tea cultivars all with unique characteristics and nuances that make our blends really stand out. Our long standing relationship with the Nishi family allows us to select the very best micro-lots and fine tune our sencha and matcha blends each year. The Nishi Organic Tea Farm consists of many different gardens secluded in pine and cedar forests of Kirishima Mountain, an active volcano on Kyushu, Island. The densely forested area where these amazing tea farms are located provides a natural buffer zone that protects the tea gardens from industrial pollution.
