Quality green tea that tea professionals love
Shoraien offers many varieties of powdered green tea as well as other types of Japanese tea such as Sencha (common loose-leaf Japanese green tea), Gyokuro (the highest quality loose-leaf green tea grown in the shade) and Hojicha (roasted Japanese green tea with a reddish-brown color). Many experts of tea ceremony, such as teachers from Urasenke School as well as general Japanese tea lovers, favor their green tea powder. Those who are normally not fond of Koicha (thick green tea made with green tea powder) find their tea delicious saying, “I enjoy drinking Shoraien’s Koicha because it is not too bitter but mild and slightly sweet”. Their light and slightly sweet tea “Konomi no Shiro” (1575 yen/40 g) is suitable for special occasions such as New Year. Its fresh taste is appropriate to celebrate the new spring. You are sure to become a fan of their tea.
