For 35 years now, Irie san has invested his time and energy in growing 100% chemical and pesticide-free green tea.
Tucked in the forest at nearly 600 meters above sea level in the Yame mountains, the tea leaves used by Irie san benefit directly from a healthy and naturally enriched soil.
The nutrients, minerals and vitamins absorbed by the trees end up in the leaves, and so, eventually, in your cup, helping your body to remain strong and healthy.
"Jun" is one of the few organic teas from the Yame area.
The quality of this Sencha is exceptional. It yields a strong and refreshing taste, either in hot and cold brew.
Easy to brew, the Umami of this tea is very present, and the balance between bitterness and sweetness is exceptional.
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, making it a perfectly safe and healthy beverage to enjoy.
