Okumidori is known to possess a well balanced taste of umami and bitterness. The natural sweetness of this variety is further emphasised by its deep jade green color when brewed. To create a unique flavour profile, these okumidori tea trees were covered for 7 days. The leaves from each year are harvested from the same tea field.
Yubune is located in the northest region of Wazuka Town. The mountanious terrain makes the weather 3℃ cooler than in centre of 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.
The First Flush, usually in Spring, is also known as the first harvest of the season. Only the youngest and most tender shoots are harvested. We hope you feel the tranquility of Wazuka with each sip.
