Posted by tanimotomikito on

Hi, I'm Mikito from Senchado Tokyo as the co-founder and the designer. I would love to introduce you the incredible world of green tea! We are redesigning green tea to change the concept of old-fashioned tea into new dimension.


UJIHIKARI is the cultivar made in Uji as you thought.
You should try to drink the first cup brewed at a low temperature, and you can feel the condensed Umami and fragrance taking your time. This is the Uji style.

UJIHIKARI is the most unique compared to the other Gyokuro, it has a subtle fragrance.
This is a classified Umami category in Senchado Tokyo, we would like to recommend someone who loves Gyokuro and Umami.

Here is our index of taste of green tea. It is just a reference but you can use it for find your favorites!

Sweetness: ★★
Bitterness: ★
Umami: ★★★

Here is the information of producing: what the tea is, where the tea leaf comes from, who made it, how high the altitude is and how the roasting is.

These are really important information to know the green tea deeply. But there never was such thing or concept when we start tea business
