KEIKO Tenko Leaves


Tenko (meaning "Gift of Heaven") is made from the picking at the end of April. It has a lasting aftertaste like Tenbu Fuka and Soshun.


Tenko gives a jade green colour in the cup. Also, it gives a rich fruity-fresh fragrance and a extraordinary nutty taste.

  1. Boil water and allow it to cool to 60°C to 65°C.
  2. Using a Kyusu-teapot, take 2-3 teaspoon of tea and fill the base of the Kyusu-teapot. Pour the cooled water into Kyusu-teapot.
  3. Allow the first infusion to steep for no longer than one minute.
  4. Pour a little tea into each cup then fill them up further in reverse order. This will make sure that the tea in each cup is equally strong. The pouring movements gradually give the tea the correct green color. Pour out the very last “golden” drops, to make sure the tea does not steep any further.
