This tea flight showcases three green teas from one of Japan’s most prized tea regions: Honyama, Shizuoka. Unlike the sunny flatlands of Shizuoka, which produce a lot of Japan’s mid-to low-grade sencha, the mountainous region of Honyama produces tea praised for its transparent and elegant taste, deriving from the mineral rich soil and the subtle, natural shade of fog and mountains.

Tea from this region has been grown and revered for centuries, and has even been presented as tribute to the Emperor by order of Tokugawa Ieyasu in the Edo period. Typically unshaded and lightly-steamed, honyamacha is known for its clear, crisp taste, and distinctive aroma, known as yama no kaori (山の香) or mountain aroma.

This sample set contains two senchas and one kamairicha from the same producer, representing both Honyama’s past and its future:
