Made from the big leaves (yamagi) that are a by-product of making sencha tea, Shibafune is known for its light, refreshing taste. The overall taste of yanagi is somewhat similar to that of sencha, though without sencha's characteristic sweetness. But if you prefer a casual tea that has a sharp refreshing flavor with a light bitterness, then yanagi is a good choice for you.

Our highest grade yanagi is Wakayanagi. With Wakayanagi, you can enjoy a double benefit: sencha-like taste with bancha's ease of preparation (just add boiling water).Shibafune goes well with meals. It is ideal for refreshing the palate between courses and before/after meals. It is also a good choice for ochazuke (tea poured over rice accompanied by Japanese pickled vegetables).

*Up to 3 pots can be made using the same tea leaves.
*When brewing a 2nd and 3rd pot of tea, no steeping is required. Just add hot water to the teapot, and serve.

  • 1. Place 20 g (4 tbsp.)
    in a jar or other container.
  • 2. Add 1 liter (1 qt) of chilled water.
  • 3. Brew for 1 hour.
  • * Brewing overnight in the refrigerator is fine. When desired strength reached, transfer to other container, straining the tea leaves.
