About Miyabi Sencha | みやび煎茶

Description: Our first spring release from Yame. Miyabi sencha is sparkling with fresh, intense aromatics and a sweet and clear finish. Truly one of our most aromatic sencha, Miyabi carries the hallmark "hiire" aroma of many Yame sencha - a deep nuttiness reminiscent of toasted hazelnuts. Miyabi is an easy tea to fall in love with.

What is so special about this tea? Miyabi might well be our flagship sencha. I fell in love with this product when it was given to me as a gift from a friend returning back to the US from Japan. Its intense aroma and sublime balance of umami and sweetness had me hooked. So much so that in 2010 I made a special trip to visit the tea maker - and his dedication to making pinnacle grade tea inspired me to start Kettl. After two years of developing our relationship, we finally began working together in 2012 and Miyabi was the very first tea I imported to the US. And to this day, it remains a reminder of what it is I love so deeply about Japanese tea.

Recommended for: Any sencha lover should try this tea - a perfect example of perfectly made Yame sencha.

Amazing Umami

I have been searching across the US and Japan (who will ship to the US) for a sencha with sweetness, deep umami, low astringency and rich green color for many years, only to be disappointed time and time again. This has led to blending my own sencha, which is a little bit of work. Wow! This sencha is rich in umami and color with a nice grassy finish. My search has come to an end and I am thrilled with the nice selection of teas offered. Customer service is also great!

Success! Feel free to continue shopping or head to your cart .
