*Now also available in 500g.
Irie-san’s decades of experience producing chemical- and pesticide-free green tea truly shows with this stunning sencha. This tea is grown at 600 meters above sea level which allows the tea leaves to absorb more nutrients, minerals, and vitamins. This pleasant and well-balanced sencha is a great everyday option. Subtle notes of persimmon and toasted almond accent a smooth liquor with notes of steamed bok choy and sweet grass.
JUN is among a handful of organic teas grown in the Yame area. This tea is definitely one of our favorite and probably the best one to discover and enjoy Japanese green tea.
Made in small quantities by a farmer who relies on the sole power of nature, it is an exceptional and rare tea that even our clients in Japan are surprised to discover. Irie san’s tea has passed the most stringent tests, including those set up in Germany.

As such, he was one of the first tea producers in Japan to embrace organic tea production.
