Tips for Tea Connoisseurs

Golden Treasure Shiracha, also known as "White Sencha" or "Golden Sencha" is an extremely, rare and highly praised Japanese green tea among Japanese tea connoisseurs for its deep, rich, umami and elegant flavours. Made from highly rare Hoshino-Midori cultivar grown in the mountain region of Yame, this gracious shaded Sencha is one of the best and most delicious Sencha we've ever tasted.  

The tea field of Hoshino Midori cultivar creates an amazing scenery, one of its kind, as Hoshino Midori leaves are naturally white when new shoots and tea leaves come out - voila, this tea gets its name "White Sencha" from its naturally white coloured tea leaves. When they're exposed to the sun, tea leaves gradually turn into green, due to the process of photosynthesis. 

Masterfully crafted into a beautiful, golden, yellow green leaves, our Golden Treasure Shiracha offers a powerful, deep, rich, umami infusion with silky and creamy mouthfeel. You will be surprised that the tea yields consistently delicious, rich umami flavour when infused 4 - 5th times with Kyushu teapot, given that Japanese sencha loses its flavour quite quickly after second infusion. 

As with all green tea, Golden Treasure Shiracha is rich in antioxidants and known for its potential health benefits such as promoting heart health, cancer prevention, boosting the immune system and lowering down blood pressure. 

A supreme example of masterfully crafted, highly rare Japanese green tea that will not only enhance your vitality and energy, but will also lift your sprit any time of the day.
