Along with our famous Yamashita Gyokuro, Maiko Tea offers a great selection of superior Sencha, Matcha, Houjicha, Genmaicha and other teas from the Kyoto region. Our assortment ranges from exclusive tea, which the Emperor of Japan embibes, to easily prepared tea for your daily consumption such as our “tetra” teabag items. Naturally, first and foremost we recommend the products of our tea master, Yamashita Toshikazu. Our Yamashita Gyokuro has a rich sweet taste with a characteristic luscious fragrance. It is uniquely complex yet gentle and easy going. The production of this 'expert' tea is limited to a few kilograms a year since it's processing is extremely detailed and time consuming. The resulting Yamashita Gyokuro has thick tea leaves that maintain their pleasant flavor up to 4-5 infusions.


Our ultra-high quality “Yamashita Gyokuro” is grown at the tea gardens surrounding the residence of Maiko Tea's renowned tea expert, Yamashita Toshikazu. He watches daily over the production of this exquisite premium tea and makes sure that every step of cultivation and manufacturing is done with great care, attention and skill.Link to the products


encha is the most commonly consumed tea in the country, accounting for 75% of the green tea produced in Japan. It is enjoyed for daily all over Japan. The tea plants are grown in open-air tea fields and exposed to sunlight up until harvest. The buds are picked, steamed, then dried and kneaded.
Sencha has a uniquely fresh aroma and refined astringency. Although all Sencha contains caffeine, the effects are mild in the presence of nutrients and vitamins in the tea leaves.
However, it is known to be quite healthful and revitalizing.
