The tea itself is the result of the careful selection of soil, fertilizer, and water, right up to the characteristic deep steam process. As it is a tea which is both gifted, and dedicated to, Ise Grand Shrine, it is a prize product.

Sencha Meijin Kentarou was awarded as a Special Selection in the Hosting Souvenir Selection 2017 awards. Sencha Meijin Kentarou has been made by the carefully selected first pick leaves and stalks. This product is an assortment of Sencha Meijin Kentarou and Meijin Kentarou Hojicha. It is a well-known tea brand named after tea ceremony specialist Meijin (Master) Kentarou who was conferred with the Order of the Sacred Treasure (4th class, Gold Rays with Rosette) and the Japanese government’s Medal of Honor (yellow ribbon). It has been made by carefully selected first pick tea leaves and as such it has been named after Meijin and we have an exclusive contract with a tea plantation. The tea itself is the result of the careful selection of soil, fertilizer, and water, right up to the characteristic deep steam process. With just cold water you can be satisfied with the fresh sweetness of the tea, and with hot water a rich umami and mellow aroma become immediately apparent. The specially made paulownia box also gives it a feeling of it being produced to a high standard. As it is a tea which is both gifted, and dedicated to, Ise Grand Shrine, it is a prize product.
