Which Teas Are Available on Chideno? 

You can check out our premium rare imported teas using this link. We wanted to let you know about who the Japanese Green Tea producers behind these great products are so we hand picked special reports on a few of the selection:

Chideno Ikkyu Ren High Grade Sencha Green Tea

Rarity: Extremely Rare - First Harvest

From Chiran area, Kagoshima prefecture, the leaves of this high-grade sencha are harvested in April. Four different cultivars are blended for making this sencha: yutaka midori, yabukita, sae midori and asatsuyu, making it the flagship of Shimono-en.

It is therefore truly unique and exceptional, and this shines through its tastes and fragrance that are perfectly well balanced. This sencha is also visually appealing with its beautiful light green color. You will appreciate its freshness and powerful umami, but also its remarkable sweetness. It will give you the same pleasure after a second and even a third brew.

Production: 

Thanks to its southern location, Chiran enjoys the earliest first tea picking of the country, with delicious “Shincha” (new tea) available already from March.Supported by a clement weather and the proximity of several active volcanoes, the tea grown in this area has a distinctive quality that is celebrated all throughout Japan. Several cultivars that are very sensitive to cold can be grown successfully only in that area. In a general way Chiran Teas tend to be more sweet compared to other regions.

Chideno Ikkyu Toshiro Green Tea - Premium Organic Kamairicha Miayazaki Tea

Cultivation

Facing the Pacific Ocean, Miyazaki prefecture is known of its beautiful pristine beaches and its verdant and luscious mountains. It enjoys a mild climate. While it is not well known outside Japan for its tea, Miyazaki is actually the fourth tea-producing region of Japan. This area produces very high quality tea. It is notably home to the exceptional and rare Kamairi-cha, made using a very special production technique (pan fry).

Toshiro is an organic Kamairicha Green Tea produced by Miyazaki Sabo picked end may during the first harvest from the Miyazaki perfecture.

One of the rarest high-grade green teas produced and imported from Japan is not steamed but fried and is still full of antioxidants and definitely very much a green tea with a certain freshness factor, sweetness and subtle umami (highly balanced).

Caffeine levels of the Toshiro is quite low and hence we recommend it as a late afternoon brew. 

It can be easily brewed, in just one minute, with almost boiling water. It contains average levels of theanine and catechins.

In the mouth, you can enjoy the unmistakable taste of umami but it remains low-key, and the sweetness counterbalances its bitterness.

It is a refreshing green tea, with delicious fresh and slightly roasted fragrance that reminds you of its almost-gone processing method.

We're very impressed with the beautiful washi paper these teas are wrapped in paying homage to the high quality of the teas but also attesting to the great care taken from cultivation to packing.

Whether you are a tea lover or wish to give an exceptional gift, the Ikkyu line will impress!
