Tsuyuhikari Kabuse Aracha from Hoshino
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 Tsuyuhikari cultivar used. Tsuyuhikari is related to the Asatsuyu cultivar and has inherited its flowery notes. And from Sakuramidori, a Shizuoka cultivar, Tsuyuhikari has inherited its full-bodied aroma. Both together give the tea a unique flavor.
Harvest: May 2019
Taste: Flowery and full-bodied aroma
