Yamanien Shade-grown Sencha
Our philosophy is simple. We provide our superior Camellia sinensis (tea) plants with the very best conditions possible year-long and kindly allow nature to assist us in the cultivation of the very best Green Tea buds and leaves possible.
We know that in order to create the world's finest Sencha, our plants require a pristine growing environment, one with optimal sunlight at the peak period of their growth cycle, intense shading to encourage maximum chlorophyll production within the leaf, a consistent, mineral-rich, crystal-clear water source, and the blessing of a remarkable growing year.
Although the weather may be beyond our control, The Yamanien Way incorporates the southern-exposed, uniquely-rich micro-climate of the Mt. Fuji foothills and utilizes a one-of-kind system of controls to ensure that our Kumonoseki Award-winning Sencha Green Tea receives only the very best growing conditions imaginable!
Shizen Shitate, House-cultivated Sencha
We know that only a rich, full, healthy plant is capable of producing a superior tea which is why we encourage Shizen Shitate, or natural finish from our tea plants. This allows for the optimal overall health and well-being of the tea bush as well as maximum green growth, chlorophyll production, magnificent flavor intensity and aromatic body from the hand-picked buds and leaves.
We understand the importance of a committed relationship between the individual, their community, the environment, and the world of which we all belong. We strive to distill this deep appreciation and commitment into each drop of our Premium Yamanien Sencha Green Tea.
