Product description ------------------- Sourced from a JAS certified tea plantation in Shizuoka, Japan. The tea has an intense green colour, fuller flavour with distinctive fine-floating tea particles. The steaming process breaks down the leaf structure releasing valuable nutrients such as beta-carotene and Vitamin E into the brew. Rich in anti-oxidant CATECHIN polyphenols, particularly EGCG. It has increasing popularity in Japan due to its mild taste and extra health benefits. Long periods in the sun increases the anti-oxidant catechins and vitamin C content. Fukamushi Sencha is a milder and richer drink than normal sencha due to the minute particles in the brew attaching to the catechins and reducing the bitterness. Ocha & Co. was set up after a trip back to the UK in 2011 and a fruitless search for quality Japanese Green Teas in the local health shops and supermarkets. There just wasn't any! The aim of the company is to provide the same quality and range of teas you would experience if living in Japan. We order direct from the tea farms each week to ensure that the teas sent to our customers are extremely fresh with the longest possible best by date. The teas from this plantation are found in some of the upmarket stores in Japan such as Kinokuniya (see picture) and are exhibited yearly as the Tokyo Biofach Organic Trade show. Simple, clean packaging with stylized Japanese calligraphy. The range now covers most of the types of tea readily drunk in Japan, namely; Sencha, Fukamushicha (deep steamed sencha), Kukicha (stems and twigs), Genmaicha (roasted brown rice, sencha and matcha) and Matcha. Most of the teas have JAS organic accreditation but for a few styles we offer both organic and non-organic. All teas have been selected for the overseas market to strike a balance between quality and affordability The teas are usually shipped Airmail the same day and only take between 7-10 days to arrive from Japan.
