Aromatic Profiles

TSURU KAZUYUKI


The Tsuru Cha En plantation was founded in 1959 by the father of the current business owner, Tsuru Kazuyuki san. Since Tsuru san took over the operations in 2007, the tea production has switched to a 100% chemical and pesticide-free process. In 2017, they received the Special Farming Products Certification from Saga prefecture. Today, Tsuru san is one of only four green tea producers in Kyushu, along with Irie san in Yame, who grows tea in a completely pesticide-free manner, bringing him 'above' organic standards.

Tsuru san explains: "More than 80% of our tea trees are over fifty years old. Our constant care and pruning have allowed their roots to go deep in the ground, and benefit from all the advantages of a soil rich in nutrients. The trees absorb large quantities of minerals, making them resistant to insects and illness, even without the use of any pesticides.

We grow our leaves in a pesticide-free environment, in a location high in the mountains, where a large temperature difference and deep mists make it possible for the leaves to create the nutrients that will yield a sweet and umami-rich tea."

Best organic sencha

This is the best organic sencha I know. Even the 3rd or fourth brew are still delicious. The tea is very fragrant and smells deliciously fresh. On the palate the tea is smooth, fresh, crisp, just a touch of adstringency and a bit sweet. It is my absolute favourite sencha.

Best Sencha

This has got to be one of the very best Senchas I've tasted. It has an incredible depth and complexity, a long aftertaste and to me even the third and fourth brew tasted sublime. This is a truly fine Sencha and we like to enjoy it on a summer afternoon outside in the garden.

High quality leaves, quick delivery.

All the products have been very good. Japanese tea is really what I drink most and I'm glad when I find reliable exporters.

Perfectly balanced

Full-bodies and thick. High levels of umami with a prominent pleasant bitterness. The bitter vegetal notes evoke Brussels spouts and collared greens. The bitterness lingers and then gives way to sweet honey, especially when inhaling. Overall, this tea is a perfect balance of savory, vegetal, and bitter notes, with just a hint of sweetness. Highly recommended.
