Private Reserve Japanese Loose-leaf Tencha Leaves

From the Private Reserve, these Tencha Leaves are direct from the tea-fields of Uji, Japan.

Quality above all else, our loose-leaf tencha represents the savory and energizing complexion of matcha – all from the whole-leaf form.

What is Tencha?

Before matcha becomes matcha, it is tencha. The same careful labor, mindfulness, and hand-picked character of our Uji Matcha is poured into these Tencha Leaves – to be enjoyed as a more conventionally steeped tea.

Tencha is naturally high in antioxidants, L-theanine (the calming amino-acid) and has energizing levels of caffeine (about 30mg/g). Similar to Gyokuro, although Tencha leaves are not rolled during the drying process.

Matcha Experience in a Steeped Tea

Our Loose-leaf Tencha Leaves are a great segue for the conventional steeped-tea drinker to experience the power of matcha, and vice versa.

Vegetal flavors, full umami complexion, and the floral aromatics truly define this very-most premium Uji Tencha from Japan.
