Uji, Japan
Spring 2015


Fresh 2015 Harvest! A delicious Japanese leaf tea for any occasion. Literally translated as "Covered Tea", these plants are carefully shielded from the sun for a short period of time before harvesting causing the plant to produce more chlorophyll to make up for the lower level of sunlight. The result is a succulent sweetness and a heavy, savory "umami" aftertaste. This tea's character is somewhere between Sencha and Gyokuro, as it is only covered for 7 to 10 days.

A truly outstanding tea that strikes a perfect balance between deep green savory notes, tropical fruitiness, and a smooth, sweet buttery finish.
