This organic ichibancha is harvested in the city of Kirishima, located in central Kagoshima prefecture, Japan. It is made from the meiryoku cultivar, which is itself the result of a cross between the yabukita and yamato-midori cultivars.

An indulgent spring green tea with powerful vegetal, floral and fruity notes that develop against an elegantly powdered texture.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
