Growing Japanese Green Tea
Japanese green tea, also known as "ryokucha," is a popular type of tea that is known for its unique flavor and health benefits. The process of growing Japanese green tea is quite intricate and requires specific methods to ensure the tea leaves are of high quality.

The first step in growing Japanese green tea is selecting the right cultivar. There are several varieties of tea plants used to produce green tea, each with its unique flavor profile. In Japan, the most commonly grown cultivars for green tea production include Yabukita, Okumidori, and Saemidori.

The next step is planting the tea bushes in a suitable environment. Green tea plants are typically grown in areas with mild temperatures, high humidity, and plenty of rainfall. The soil must be fertile, well-drained, and rich in minerals such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.

After planting, the tea bushes must be pruned regularly to ensure they grow in the desired shape and size. This is done to maximize sunlight exposure, promote air circulation, and encourage the growth of new leaves.

During the growing season, the tea bushes are regularly fertilized with organic matter, such as compost or manure, to ensure they receive the nutrients needed for healthy growth.

Once the tea leaves are ready for harvest, they are carefully picked by hand to ensure only the youngest and freshest leaves are collected. This is typically done in the early morning when the leaves are still covered in dew, as this makes them more pliable and easier to handle.

After harvesting, the tea leaves are quickly transported to a processing facility, where they undergo several stages of processing. The leaves are first withered to remove excess moisture, then rolled and dried to stop the oxidation process. Finally, the leaves are sorted and graded according to their quality.

The final product is a high-quality Japanese green tea that is known for its distinctive flavor, aroma, and health benefits. Japanese green tea is often enjoyed on its own or paired with traditional Japanese sweets, and is an important part of Japanese culture and cuisine.

Smooth like silk on the palate. The scent of the roasted rice and matcha intemingling like the finest fragrance.

Excellent sencha. I did not taste any bitterness at all.

My favourite

The taste is balanced And not too bitter

Thank you so much for sharing your taste review. :)

Balanced of sweetness and bitterness

This one is the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness for me. I am not fan of bitterness of tea but this combination of sweetness and little bitt of bitterness makes me feel energetic. I smell and taste the freshness with every sip in the morning. it contains 20 grams I feel the quantity is not too much. So now I wanna try their other matcha to compare.

Hello, Amber.
Thanks for leaving a thoughtful review about our matcha.

My Favorite Matcha

I have used this Koiai matcha for 3 years now since my Japanese friend recommend. I love it! It is the best I have tasted. It's fresh and nutty as well. I used to drink coffee every morning but now I make my own Matcha lattes at home. It is very dense because it is high quality ceremonial matcha so make sure you sift matcha for creamy and foaming.

Thank you for loving KOIAI Matcha. We will share this great review with our farmers. Thank you again.

Lacking customer service

I reached out twice to Osada Tea regarding my tea order, once before I bought the tea and once after regarding the discount that I did not apply and the first time a question about radiation. I never heard from anybody on either of my questions. Also the tea that I ordered tastes really bad and I don’t know why but I just can’t drink it so I was a bit of a waste of money for me and I will not be re-ordering
