Kabuse Sencha from Hoshino
The tea leaves for this Kabuse sencha were picked in the famous village of Hoshino in Yame. Hoshino means translated “star field”. A fitting name as in this remote mountain valley the stars shine especially bright. Kabuse sencha from mountain valleys such as Yame are a rarity because, 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.
The Yamanoibuki cultivar was used for this tea. Yamanoibuki is related to the famous Yabukita cultivar and is therefore similar to it in some ways. The full-bodiedness of Yamanoibuki paired with the typical Yabukita freshness gives the tea a unique aroma.
