Organic whole leaf Japanese green tea harvested and processed by the Hayashi family in Kirishima, Japan.
Kirishima is a city in Kagoshima. The mountains of Kirishima produce one of the most highly regarded sencha teas in Japan.
Kirishima tea, also known as Kirishima cha comes from the area around Kirishima City 霧島市 at the heart of the prefecture in southernmost Japan’s Kirishima and Aira Region 霧島・姶良エリア. Together with the tea farmers of Chiran, the region produces the prefecture’s best green teas regarded as some of the best teas in Japan.
I have been fascinated by the teas from the Hayashi family for quite some time.
This sencha is fresh, rich in umami flavour, a great everyday Japanese green tea for every occasion.

Organic Miumori Kirishima Sencha Green Tea (Shutaro Hayashi) 100 grams bag
The Miumori Kirishima Sencha is a composition of comparably deeply steamed leaves and comparably flatly steamed leaves of mainly seed grown tea bushes (zairai). The deeply steamed leaves give this tea a smooth roundness and sweetness, while the shorter steamed leaves bring an enjoyable flavour into the tea. At the same time, thanks to the blend of these two types of leaves, both, the 1st and the 2nd infusion are very delicious, because the opening time of both leaves types are not the same, when they get in contact with the warm water in the tea pot.
The recommendation to brew this tea goes as follows:
Amount of tea: 3 grs of tea (about a teaspoon)
Amount of water: 200 ml of water (if chalky use mineral water)
Water temperature: 60 degrees Celsius (1st brew) 70 degrees Celsius (2nd to 4th brew)
Amount of time: 60 secs (1st brew) 10 secs (2nd to 4th brew)
