2021 Sencha First Flush: Yabukita - Yubune Hakusan Shrine
Cultivated variety: Yabukita
Shading period: 0 days
On the 7th of May we harvested our sencha Yabukita for 2021 from our organic tea fields in Yubune Hakusan Shrine, Wazuka Town.
Farmed with completely organic methods, if what you're looking the signature fresh aroma of the first harvest, this is the sencha for you. This year's sencha Yabukita also has a visually pleasingly vibrant green and a gentle umami taste.
Yubune is located in the northest region of Wazuka. The mountanious terrain makes the weather 3℃ cooler than in central Wazuka, which causes the harvested tea to possess a much sweeter taste. These fields are also organic and pesticide-free.
Yubune is also a popular location for tea production as this area was formerly the main production site for competition-grade tea. The soil in the area is rich with nutrients, evident from the 500-year-old cedar trees that grace the borders of our tea fields.
