2019 First Flush: Sencha Yabukita (Yubune)
Cultivated variety: Yabukita
Shading period: N/A
Yubune is located in the northeastern part of Wazuka Town. The temperature gap between day and night is the especially distinct in this region. This greatly affects the flavour profile of the tea.
By harvesting the really young leaves only, the young leaves creates the unique scent similar to watermelon. The soil is soft and rich in nutrients (especially nitrogen), creating a well-balanced of umami flavour profile.
- 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.
