2022 Sencha First Flush: Okumidori - 14 days shaded
Cultivated variety: Okumidori
Shading period: 14 days
This okumidori tea field of ours in Yubune was shaded for 14 days to develop the unique kabusecha flavour. The first brew has a fresh vegetal scent, with a light hint of bitterness and umami. With the second brew onwards, the colour of the tea takes on a deep green that is characteristic of kabusecha.
We would highly recommend our Okumidori - 14 days shaded if you enjoy sencha that is balanced and easily cleanses your palate.

About Yubune, Wazuka-cho
Yubune is located in the north of Wazuka-cho. The mountainous terrain makes the weather 3℃ cooler than in central Wazuka, which causes the harvested tea to possess a much sweeter taste. These fields are also organic and pesticide-free. Yubune is also a popular location for tea production as this area was formerly the main production site for competition-grade tea. The soil in the area is rich with nutrients, evident from the 500-year-old cedar trees that grace the borders of our tea fields.
