Cultivated variety: Yabukita
Shading period: 7 days

Harvested from our Somada Bishamondo fields in Wazuka, Kyoto. To create a unique flavour profile, these Yabukita tea trees were covered for 7 days. You will get to enjoy a strong bitterness, delicately accompanied by a moderate umami taste.

If what you're looking for is Yabukita's signature fresh aroma, a visually pleasingly vibrant green, and a truly Japanese umami taste; this is the Sencha for you. Feel the calmness of Wazuka with each sip.

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.
  • Cultivation method: Pesticide-free.
  • 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.
