Origin:Shizuoka, Japan


Experience the luxury of the Sugimoto Reserve collection, and the difference that authenticity makes. Homare Sencha is the highest quality sencha currently offered by Sugimoto Tea Company, our pride and joy. This is evident even in the name, which Hiroyuki Sugimoto gave to the tea: “homare” meaning “pride.” It’s made from the best of the best Yabukita tea leaves from the spring harvest, carefully selected and blended together to ensure the highest quality.

This unique fukamushi style sencha is reminiscent of green beans and edamame, rich and brothy with a striking spring sweetness. Given our signature high heat final roast, this tea leaves a rich lingering finish.

Recommended Brewing: As this is a premium sencha, we recommend using a small Japanese kyusu and steeping at a lower temperature than is normal for most other senchas.

Homare Sencha

No wonder it is dubbed homare---it must be the Sugimoto familys pride and joy! As for me, it is my new favorite mellow green tea as I look out over the morning garden beside my cat.

Homare Sencha

This is the finest Sencha I have ever had. Pure elegance.

Exceptional Sencha

I wanted to try a premium grade Japanese sencha tea. This tea is all about experiencing the aroma of the tea leaves and it’s wonderful lingering taste. I use a kyusu teapot to brew mine and enjoy it in the afternoon. It’s an excellent choice and a new favorite of my Sugimoto tea collection.

Reserve Homare Sencha

If I were to describe Homare Sencha in 3 words they would be RICH, UMAMI, and BROTHY. My favorite Sugimoto Reserve Homare Sencha has plenty of umami, reminiscent of oiled and roasted asparagus and steamed edamame with a long heavy finish that coats the tongue and lingers along with a slight sweetness. If your palate leans towards rich and deep flavors with a heavy mouthfeel, than this might be worth a try.
