Asatsuyu Organic

The 2021 harvest is on its way here.  We expect to see it late July.  There was severe weather in Kirishima this year which effected the tea harvest.  Because of this, only a limited quantity was available so we will not be able to offer bulk discounts in 2021. 

Our top grade sencha from Kirishima.  This tea is from the Asatsuyu cultivar of tea and has earned the nickname of "Natural Gyokuro" for good reasons.  Although it is not shade-grown, it has a vivid green liquor and deep umami characteristic that is typically associated  with gyokuros.  The farm it is grown on is completely self-contained, bio-dynamic and the oldest tea farm in the region.  The aroma of the dry leaves is compelling and rich and only grows as it is steamed.  The resulting tea is out of this world and a gift to any sencha-lover.  

Harvest: Spring 2020
Origin: Kagoshima, Japan
