For all of you Japanese green tea lovers I am so happy to finally offer this tea!  This is a tea I was first introduced to a few years ago while visiting Kagoshima in October.  Not only are the brothers who make this tea crafting extraordinary teas, they are also avid motorcycle enthusiasts, so we have a lot in common.  

The aroma of the dry leaf is intoxicating and refreshing.  Steeped, the tea slides into your mouth coating it with a rich, brothy soup that intensifies as it reaches your throat. The flavor notes fill the spectrum between earthy and astringent without touching either.  A thick umami lays the base with tones of kombu and a soft hint of sea mist.  The flavor lingers and cools the palate and throat with each breath.  

This tea can be steeped 4-5 times.  The second and third steeps should only be 10 seconds, and after that can go up to 30 seconds.  After steeping 5 times you can pour dashi or soy sauce on the leaves and eat them

Harvest: 2024
Origin: Kagoshima, Japan
