STORY BEHIND THE TEA

This Zairai (seed grown old tea tree material) Sencha is Asamushi processed in the final step which means it is lightly, and often directly, steamed next to the tea field. The cup has usually lighter color of the brew with a deep body and overall sweetness! This tea was grown at 700m altitude, which is rare and unusual for Japanese teas.

 
Samidori is normally only used for the production of Gyokuro and Tencha, with Zairai Sencha, and especially Kabusecha being a rarity.
