Sencha Kawaminami is the premier fukamushi sencha produced by the multi-Nihoncha Award winning tea farm Igeta Seicha, located in Miyazaki prefecture, one of Japan's finest tea regions.
Produced from a blend of Yabukita and Saemidori cultivars, the first harvest leaves undergo fukamushi, or deep steaming, producing an almost clear, vibrant green liquor. This is truly a sencha to savour and enjoy with full attention.
The highest quality is a core value of Igeta Seicha and the reason they oversee every aspect of tea production, from the cultivating healthy soil to final packaging of the finished tea. Multiple top Nihoncha Awards placings are evidence of this commitment to excellence.
It was at their tea garden at Mt. Kuroyama, where the humidity, fog and abundant southern sun create truly perfect conditions for tea, that they became the first tea company in Miyazaki Prefecture to earn JAS organic certification.
