New tea farmer Yancy Lever revived abandoned yabukita tea fields that had been growing wildly for a couple of years, and began harvesting from it in 2019 under the direction of a veteran farmer. Processing occurs at his teacher's factory, and he is learning to process tea as well. Yancy's premium sencha has the small stems sorted out. Please see below for more detail on flavor. 

  • Ingredients: Green Tea
  • Harvest: May
  • Cultivar: Yabukita
  • Region: Aruse Village, Tokushima (The field is 200 meters from the border of Kochi where Yancy lives.)
  • Processing: Yamashiro Chagyo Kumiai, Yamashiro Village, Miyoshi City, Tokushima Prefecture

Teas by Yancy: 

Standard Sencha Premium Sencha Light Roasted Hojicha

Flavor

This sencha has an unique, yet very charming, flavor for a sencha. It is flowery and aromatic in a way more typical to oolong teas. The taste is soft and has notes of vegetal green with no bitterness. For fans of fragrant teas, or people looking to try an unique sencha, this is the perfect choice.

About Yancy Lever, an American in Japan

Instagram

Yancy Lever is an American farming tea, yuzu citrus, soba (buckwheat) and other vegetables in the beautiful mountains of Otoyo Village, Kochi, and neighboring Aruse Village, Tokushima, Japan. He began tea farming just 2 years ago, after falling in love with and marrying his wife Azusa who is from Otoyo Village.

Otoyo Village is more well known for its goishicha tea, but the same tea fields also produce sencha, so Yancy is starting his journey as a tea farmer with Japan's standard tea.
