Organic Harumidori Sencha grown in Kawane
Kawane and Honyama are considered by connoisseurs of Japanese teas to be one of the top tea-growing regions. In Kawane, where the Oi River springs, are the conditions ideal for high-quality tea. The nights are clear and cool and the mornings misty. The narrow valleys also provide natural shade for the tea fields. It is therefore not surprising that the tea leaves in this area are harvested about a month later than teas in low-lying Shizuoka.
In one of these beautiful mountain valleys, we came across another highly interesting boutique farm. They grow their tea pure organic and impress with an interessting selection of cultivars. Some of the used cultivars are even new to us. Furthermore, we are the first tea shop to introduce their white tea which is also partly made of one of those, to us, new tea cultivars.
What is special about Harumidori Gyokuro?
It’s the cultivar and the fact that Gyokuro is usually grown in flat region where setting up shading is easier. Also, it’s the first time that we have Harumidori cultivar in our assortment and it’s also the first time that we are able to offer Gyokuro from this boutique tea farm in Kawane.
