Our sencha, or sun-grown steamed green tea, comes directly from the PARU Tea Estate in Nara, Japan, 550 meters from the foot of Mt. Kono. This mountain is known by locals and visitors alike for its breathtaking views and as a popular stargazing site. Our farm partner, Taro san, is passionate about using only natural growing methods so that insects and flowering plants can co-exist without disturbance. The tea’s beautifully sweet and delicate green notes make a wonderful complement to seafood and vegetable dishes and rich, creamy desserts.

An initial sweetness of grapes and green apples follows a nuttiness and slight marine body to this tea. Completed by pleasant astringency, mild dryness, and a beautiful lime green brew, Mainichi Sencha offers a light flavor profile for an afternoon respite.
A wonderful tea befitting a wonderful tea house’s estate.
Great tea from great people and a cool spot!!!
