First harvest 2023

This delicious organic sencha from Chiran area (Kagoshima) is plucked during the first harvest by Orita san, one of the first tea producers to turn to organic farming in Japan in the 1970s.

This deep-steamed (fukamushi) sencha is the perfect tea if you are looking for one with a full, rich mouthfeel. Orita-san has created a tea that beautifully represents Chiran. This tea is very aromatic and vibrant, and has notes of fresh spinach, pea tendrils, and yuzu peel.

Now in 100g, and also available in bulk quantities (15% off for 5 bags, and 20% off on packs of 1kg)

Producer Information

NOBUO ORITA

Orita Nobuo san was 24 years-old when he inherited his family tea farm and factory from his father, in 1970. Established in 1960, Orita-en tea plantation decided to turn to organic tea already in the 1970s, but it took them 20 years of trial and errors to find the right method that would yield a satisfactory result. They received the JAS organic certification in 2000 when it was first launched.

The fields of Orita-en cover 25 ha in Chiran area. Their teas benefits from the rich soil and the mild climate of the Kagoshima peninsula. Their products are the results of both a great environment and careful work. Tea trees that grow according to organic standards and methods tend to become deficient because their metabolism is activated and requires a large amount of nutrients and trace elements.

Relying on scientific data, Orita-en selects the type and quantity of nutrients necessary by performing original soil analysis and fertilisation design. Using microorganisms, they can achieve synergy with fertiliser agents and obtain a highly efficient control.

Daily OG Sencha

I've tried all of the organic senchas at Ikkyu and love Naomi the best for my daily morning tea. The second brew is the best, so be sure to clear the busyness away to really enjoy the spark. Would LOVE to see Naomi in a 100g bag in the future.

A good, hearty fukamushi-cha

A good, hearty fukamushi-cha, with herbal notes in the aroma. It reminded me of British nettle soup — though it's sweeter — and warm white bread. A great breakfast tea, I think, especially on a cold day.
