Tea Story

The blossoming of the cherry tree is quite an event in Japan and is know as 'the spirit of the season'. Cherries have a distinctive taste and explode with rich sweet flavor when combined with tea from Hunan and subtle rose. Kyoto is the cultural center of Japan. Beside the multitude of temples and the wonderful parks where religious scholars once walked, the city has more the 1000 Torjii – those typical gate/arch structures that one associates with Japan. The Torjii are large with the top shaped like a curved samurai sword (respect) and the two pillars are solid and stately (well being). During the spring time this area of Japan is ablaze with the new season cherry blossoms and the air is filled with sweet aroma. It is little wonder that this ancient city has a very high ratio of tea rooms and this tea was created to honor (very important Japan) this wonderful time of the year. Hunan Province produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavor noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body. [In Hunan the tea starts growing about March 15th, and between them and the end of April the quality is very good. Once you pass April, the quality plummets on account of the volume of leaf taken in and the bushes growing too quickly. We only buy our China tea requirements from tea grown between March 15 and April 15 – you will taste our quality and dedication to better tea when you compare our tea with similarly graded teas].
