Cultivated variety: Yabukita
Shading period: 0 days

On the 1st of May we harvested our first Sencha for 2020 from our tea fields in Shirasu, Wazuka, Kyoto. These tea fields were treated with great care and detail as we had initially planned to submit the leaves to a regional tea competition in Japan. The competition however, was cancelled due to the current crisis. Nonetheless, the same level of attention was given during the harvesting process, and only the upper most shoots were harvested.

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.

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.
