2022 Sencha First Flush: Yabukita - Yubune Hakusan Shrine
Cultivated variety: Yabukita
Shading period: N/A
Farmed with completely organic methods, if what you're looking the signature fresh aroma of the first harvest, this is the sencha for you. This year's sencha yabukita also has a visually pleasingly vibrant green and a gentle umami taste.
Yubune is located in the northern region 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.
