Description

Premium deep steamed (i.e., fukamushicha) sencha made with a single tea plant cultivar, okuharuka. Okuharuka is a relatively new extremely late budding green cultivar with cold resistance which was bred at the Green Tea Laboratory of Saitama Prefecture Agriculture and Forestry Research Center. It is an intriguing cultivar that has a subtle and delicate scent of cherry blossom leaves. When steeped with hotter temperatures, one will obtain even more of its floral essence. With this rare single cultivar sencha from Yokota Tea Gardens, please enjoy the sensation of spring in your throat. Grown by 4th, 5th, and 6th generation tea farmers in the famous Sayama region of Saitama prefecture.
