Embrace the sunrise with this authentic Japanese Sencha from Shizuoka. This award-winning authentic Sencha is grown at the foot of Mt. Fuji and thrives in rich volcanic soil, full of nutrients that make our tea so unique. It delivers a bold initial bitterness that evolves into a sweet, fresh Shiso aroma. Perfect for midday warmth and pairs beautifully with sweets or peanuts.

Preparation Guidelines

Although we always suggest the usage of a Kyusu to serve the perfect tea, Mohei's tea can be prepared with the simplest utensils we all have at home! The most important part is to follow the instructions below.

Goraiko can be infused up to 5 times. Each number below is listed from the left to right, 1st infusion to the last.

Quantity of tea (in gram) per serving

5g = Up to 5 infusions

Water Quantity (in ml) per infusion

150->150->150->150->150

Water Temperature (in Cº) per infusion

80º->80º->90º->90º->100º

Brewing time (in sec) per infusion

70->40->60->70->100

Tea Pairing

Best moment of the day: Lunch

Japanese tea is traditionally offered with Japanese sweets. They also pair very well with all sorts of meals, either for breakfast, lunch, breaks, or even dinner (for the lower-caffeine tea).

During his years of serving tea to his dear customers, Mohei's knowledge of the flavors and characteristics of his teas allows him to share the wonders of an exceptional green tea served with the right food. When paired well, Japanese tea can unlock further benefits such as better digestion, better diet, or enhanced sensation of satiety.

Little snack on the side

Prepare a bowl of nuts and a cup of Goraiko for a relaxing appetizer
