In the hills around Kyoto, the third generation of the Nagata family use special organic methods, known as Nature Farming, to produce a range of exquisite green teas for Clearspring.
The ancient farming approach used by the Nagatas builds up soil vitality by maintaining a semi-wild environment, where the plants are not overly protected and gain nourishment from repeated applications of compost made from tea clippings and dried leaves, which together with regular mulching helps control weed growth and maintain soil moisture.
Whilst most tea farmers spray their plants with pesticides and herbicides 15-20 times a year, the Nagatas' tea bushes have a vigour that enables them to thrive without chemical inputs.
The Nagatas' yields may be lower than average but their plants have far less mould and blight. They remain productive for up to 40 years, twice as long as the typical tea bush treated with chemicals.
As well as growing tea, the Nagatas undertake the skilful blanching, drying and roasting processes to bring out the unique flavours of each individual blend.
I have drunk many green teas over the years, having spent a lot of time in China and Hong Kong, and I know exactly what I appreciate in a good tea. This one I find to be excellent. It has the wonderful, vibrant green colour essential, I have found, for a decent green tea, and has a lovely light, slightly sweet- flavour that doesn't linger too long. I find that the vibrant colour and the tea itself, give me a real uplift. I will definitely be buying again when I run out.
I absolutely live this matcha sencha mix. Gives me so much energy throughout the day.
I have never drunk this tea before and can say that I am really happy to have found it! I love the colour; I love the taste. I love the way it lifts my spirits!
A little goes a long way, just a pinch in a mug as I use it, I prepare using boiled water with a dash of cold added - this stops the risk of any bitterness in green tea,
Is my favourite bedtime drink along with Clearspring loose roasted Kukicha/Twig Tea /Bancha..
Love this tea- bright green and leaves a fresh sweet taste in mouth. Will buy again.
