This top-quality, certified-organic Korean green tea, unparalleled in excellence for taste and growing practices, has been awarded Gold and Gold Grand Prize by Japan’s World Green Tea Contest many years in a row. Grown on the Jirisan mountain range on the southern Korean coast, this light infusion conceals a brilliant complexity of flavor on the boundary between Chinese and Japanese teas. The leaves are gently pan-roasted to seal in their freshness, hand-rolled, and then baked at low temperatures to complete the drying process. This process offers a rich flavor with a bready, nut-like complexity. It carries the beauty of walking along a beach on a cool, crisp sunny day, scouring the ground for sea glass and shells.
Due to the small size of this farm and its produce, Dobrá Tea is honored to be the sole retailer of this tea in the United States, and one of a very small number in the rest of the world.
Nok Cha is sold in a 50g packet for $24.00.
[ka-boo-say-cha] Shaded Sencha
This organic, Sencha-style green tea is shade-grown for fewer than 20 days. Shade growing increases the amount of protein and chlorophyll in the leaf. Kabusecha combines green freshness of Sencha with the creamy, brothy, and pungent richness of Gyokuro. The balance of flavors and pleasant umami is sure to please both Sencha and Gyokuro enthusiasts. A perfect pairing for laughter with good friends.
Kabusecha is sold in a 50g packet for $28.00.
[shin-cha] First Flush Sencha
The first harvest (spring harvest) of Sencha each year is a special time in Uji, Japan. It marks the start of the busy tea harvesting season. In each cup you will taste youthful excitement and early brightness. The Shincha or “First Tea” is reserved each year as a limited selection of tea in celebration of Spring. We are proud to offer Shincha to you only while fresh stocks last!
