A classic, Yabukita single-cultivar sencha from Chiyonoen. Because approximately 75% of the teas in Japan are made from the variety called Yabukita, it is an acquired taste for Japanese and many tea lovers.  Indeed, it is an excellent cultivar with a wonderful balance of taste and aroma, a cultivar that was selected from native varieties (seedlings) and registered in Shizuoka in 1953. Chiyonoen’s Yabukita sencha is characterized by its crisp taste and pleasant aroma.

  • Tips for a Pleasant Tea Drinking Experience
    • Pour boiling water into a teacup or cup, leave it for about 2 minutes to cool to around 80 ° C, and then transfer it to a kyusu (Japanese tea pot). Steep for 60 to 90 seconds and it is ready to drink! Pour up to the last drop as the last drops are where the umami resides.
