Product information "Kimura Sencha Organic Japanese Green Tea"

This fine Sencha from the April picking convinces with incomparably elegant aromas and a well-balanced, velvety-soft taste.

The Kimura Method



This organic cultivation method is named after Akinori Kimura, who originally used it to grow apples. The method aims to increase the quality of the fruit by deliberately avoiding any fertilization, thus stimulating root activity.
For the first time, this natural cultivation method was also applied to tea plants at KEIKO Biofarm. Zairai tea plants, which are grown from seed, were used for this purpose.
The harvest quantities are very small - an absolute rarity!

Preparation




For the hot infusion of Kimura Sencha, we recommend an infusion temperature of 65°C and a brewing time of about 70 seconds for the first infusion. For the second infusion, a shorter infusion time of about 30 seconds is sufficient. The last infusion can then be left to infuse a little longer (70 sec.) to bring out the full aroma.
In the cold infusion, the tea unfolds previously unknown, delicate aromas and a slight sweetness. Since the tea is only medium steamed (Chumushi), it should steep a little longer than the Fukamushi teas (7-10 minutes).

Storage




In order to preserve the valuable flavors and ingredients of the tea in the best possible way, we recommend that you close the bag tightly and store it in a cool, dark place in the refrigerator or freezer.

Genmaicha with Matcha - Organic Japanese Green Tea
Kabuse Genmaicha + Matcha is a traditional speciality made of green tea mixed with roasted rice (Genmai) and fresh green tea powder (Matcha). Kabusecha from the second picking is used for the KEIKO Genmaicha + Matcha creating a full flavour with a pleasant roasted note in the infusion. The Matcha Powder adds a magnificent, intense green colour as well as all its nutrients and aroma to the mix. The rich aroma makes Genmaicha a popular accompaniment to meals. When it is cold, the pleasant roasting aromas warm up, but even on warm days, a cold Genmaicha (prepared hot as usual and then set in the fridge to cool down) is a wonderful refreshment.   In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the tea as best as possible, we ask you to seal the bag well and store it cool and dark - ideally in your refrigerator or freezer.

Tenko - Organic Japanese Green Tea
Tenko, "gift from heaven", a half shaded green tea from the early first picking at the end of April has, like Tenbu Fuka and Soshun, this special "recurring taste" that stays on the tongue for a long time. Tenko is jade green in the cup. A rich, fruity-fresh fragrance and a characterful, mild and nut-like taste are characteristic of this tea. Kabusecha is a green tea for which the tea plants are shaded, thus forming a high content of chlorophyll and other active ingredients and at the same time little bitter substances. Their characteristic "shade aroma" is called "ooika".   Fukamushicha   Like many KEIKO teas, this is an intensively steamed tea (Fukamushi-cha, 100 - 120 seconds steaming time). Due to the gentle steaming process, the leaf pores open and the extracts from the tea leaf reach the water more easily and quickly. This can be recognized by the deep green tea colour in the cup and the yield of the tea - with top qualities up to 4 infusions are possible! Cold Brew       Intensively steamed early pickings are also particularly suitable for cold infusions (Mizudashi or Cold Brew). By infusing the leaves with cold water you will get an intensive and refreshing tea after only a few minutes. Since the bitter substances do not dissolve as strongly in cold water, the sweet aromas of the Kabusecha are especially noticeable. Storage In order to preserve the precious flavours and ingredients of the tea as best as possible, we recommend to seal the bag well and store it cool and dark - ideally in your refrigerator or freezer.
