The tea leaves for this shaded tea were picked in the famous village Hoshino in Yame. Hoshino means translated “star field”. A fitting name as in this remote mountain valley the stars shine especially bright. Shaded teas from mountain valleys such as Yame are a rarity because handling with shading materials on slopes is difficult and due to the lower temperatures, the harvest starts about a month later than in deeper and shallower growing areas. The lower temperatures, however, lead to more intense and complex aromas.
For this tea was Kanayamidori cultivar used. Kanayamidori is related to the Yabukita cultivar and has inherited its freshness. And from Shizuoka zairai cultivar no 6, it has inherited its full-bodied and fruity aroma which is sometimes refered as “milky” taste.
