Our best-selling green tea, Tokiwagi is a special blend created for our customers here in the Shonai Plain of Yamagata prefecture, Japan. This product is mainly drunk in the home and with meals.
The local diet consists of very fresh food from the surrounding rivers, mountains and sea; a famous rice growing and sake brewing area our customers have a discerning palate.
The summers extremely hot and winters extremely cold, the somewhat hardy people of this area like their tea a shade stronger than the blends drunk in Kyoto and finer than the blends enjoyed in the Tokyo area.
Sencha leaves from Shizuoka have been selected and blended to create this enticing drink.
