Cultivated variety: Yabukita
Shading period: 7 days

Well known for its quality sencha, on occasion tea farmers in Wazuka Town shade their tea trees for certain periods of time. Known as "choikabu", this practice enhances the flavour profile of the young shoots and thus final brew.

Each farmer adjusts the shading period according to the region their fields are located in. The end product is tea with a well-balanced aroma and sweet taste.

Additional Information:

  • 40 g / 1.41 oz. Approximately 10 servings; please note that each serving can be brewed up to three times using water of different temperature levels.
  • Seicha processing: To further emphasise the charm of our tea, d:matcha works closely with wholesalers during the processing phase. After the tea leaves are harvested, rolled, and dried, excess stem or powder are also carefully extracted. These tea leaves are gently reheated, but not to the point of roasting, to further highlight the aroma and taste of the tea.
