This "farmer's tea" consists of the stems and coarse leaves and is a by-product of this farm’s Kabuse tea. This tea has been shaded for about fifteen days to enrich the amino acid count and balance the tannins found in the stems. It is freshly baked upon ordering to further enhance its aroma and taste. Produced by a six-generation tea family that specializes in growing only kabuse sencha.
The roasted version of this tea is Houjicha, for a nuttier, maltier taste!
Slight baked nose, with a beautiful clear liquid and a green aftertaste that reminds us of the morning fog in Japan.
