Shizuoka tea farmer Takayuki Tarui generally uses summer second flush leaves to create oolong tea, but this year he experimented with first flush leaves. Grown pesticide free and without synthetic fertilizers, the tea is made from the karabeni cultivar, harvested mid-May 2019.

If you decide to taste it, please leave a review to give Tarui-san feedback on this product.
