ZENJIRO green tea is a green tea that incorporates the world-renowned Japanese Zen禅 philosophy. The concept is to practice Zen in your daily life, aiming for your own way of life, thanking for all things, saving waste, and aiming for a sincere lifestyle. The name of ZENJIRO禅地朗 is derived from the name of the place where our company is located, Ozenji 王禅寺(King’s Zen temple). This temple is one of the oldest temples where tea was consumed 1200 years ago.
This TCHA-TCHA product is our flagship Sencha powder, and is milled green tea leaves at the optimal particle size for beverage and sweets. Products will be shipped by air within 3 days after ordering.
This product is the highest rank among the green teas produced in Japan that boasts safety and high quality. It uses best terroir's rare tea leaves with all the good tea production conditions. Even if you spend a lot of time at home in new-corona virus era and tend to gain weight, it is effective for slimming, lipolysis around the abdomen, and detox for constipation prevention.
The basic method is simply sugar-free and mix with hot water at around 60℃ or cold water. This extracts theanine, which is a umami component and enhances autoimmunity, and the immune-activating epigallocatechin EGC. This is the base tea for various applications. This extracts epigallocatechin gallate EGCG, which is one of the catechins, decomposes fat and high antioxidant effect.
This style is similar to Japanese DASHI 出汁 stock (European stock or French von). The secret to the deliciousness of Japanese food is to make a good DASHI soup stock. This is a unique feature of the non-fermented Japanese tea. In other words, a roasted base tea with a delicious taste, improved immunity, slimming due to lipolysis, and detox can be completed.
ZENJIRO's real cafeteria offers a variety of drink menus. The arrangement from the base tea can be applied to herbal green teas such as mint, lemon balm, dill and rosemary, spice green teas such as ginger and cardamom, and chocolate flavored green teas. No matter the sweetness added or any application, the benefits of roasted base tea remain.
The concept of ZENJIRO online shop is not to offer various products variations such as herbal tea and fragrance tea, but to simply provide customers good green tea leaves which carefully selected from a safe and best Japanese production area. The conditions for high quality tea leaves are the same around the world. In other words, the place is a mountain tea plantation in the highlands with fog. Mino-Shirakawa has the highest altitude in Japan's tea production area, and the mist rising from the river at an altitude of 800m to the mountains blocks the sunlight a little and the tea leaves become very soft. Mino Shirakawa is a very rare green tea that produces only 1/1000 of Japan's total production, and the share of green tea production in the world is only 0.004%.
Customers can create the base tea recommended by ZENJIRO and can arrange it in their own style. We believe that finding it is also the state of Zen enlightenment.
This product is recommended for those who want to establish their own style. You can get the best experience by arranging high quality green tea in straight or base tea. If you do not know how to use it, please contact us and we will reply by email.
Oxidation is a risk for Japanese tea. It is okay to consume it, but as it oxidizes it approaches the black tea. The unopened bag has less than 3% oxygen, so there is no problem as the expiration date for 2 years. However, after opening the bag, fold the open part of the aluminum tea bag and release the air enough, and stop it with a rubber or stopper. Oxidation can be prevented more than transferring to a can.
As our pricing policy, We maintain cost ratio of about 1/3 of the selling price as an industry standard. Packaging is simple because it will burden the consumer if the package costs too much. However, we think that green tea is not just a message to your body, but a message to loved ones. Therefore, to meet the demand for gifts, we have one type of gift box.
Enjoy ZENJIRO hojicha green tea for quality of your life.

If hot, first extract theanine at 65 °C soft water and enjoy the umami. It has anti-stress action and can be relaxed. Extract the second cup at a higher temperature (70-80 °C) to taste the flavor of theanine and the astringent taste of catechin. Finally, extract catechins at high temperatures. Although its taste would be astringent, effects such as suppression of blood pressure increase, blood cholesterol control, blood glucose level control, antioxidant, anti-aging, and anti-cancer have been reported. You can enjoy theanine even in the cold water extracted drink. Even if theanine extracted at a low temperature is rewarmed, there is almost no loss of theanine unless it is warmed to 80 °C or higher.
