40 g / 1.41 oz
contains 10 servings
Farmers in Wazuka do not hesitate the additional work to aim higher quality. This effort historically makes Wazuka the one of the best location for the highest grade of Sencha . Even when we are prodicing Sencha, we cover our tea a little bit terms( three days to seven fays) to create the sweeter taste of the tea. ( we faremrs call it “Choi kabu”) This effort combines the geographic merit of Wazuka and the technics of farmers in Wazua, and create the surprisingly well balanced aroma and sweetness of tea.
The sencha tea leaves are plucked in the First Flush (first harvest of the year) in Wazuka, Kyoto. The tea leaves are not covered.
Yabukita is the most popular tea variety in Japan, accounting for ~75% of the tea production in the country.
This Yabukita is produced in Shirasu area which is south side of Wazuka in Kyoto.
Sencha Production Process:
After harvesting the specific tea leaves, the leaves are immediately steamed and dried to prevent them from getting fermented/oxidized (which would turn the tea into black tea). The dried tea leaves are rolled into tight twists to reduce moisture in the tea leaves to produce the final loose-leaf tea product.
