Okumidori sencha tea leaves are plucked in the First Flush (first harvest of the year) in Wazuka, Kyoto. The tea leaves are covered for 7 days.

To increase the umami taste, the tea leaves are covered with black fabric for 7 days and grown with bean-based organic fertilizers. The tea accounts for only 2% of the total tea production in Japan.

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.
