The tea leaves for this White Sencha were picked in the famous village Hoshino in Yame. It has a naturally occurring mutation that turns the color of leaves yellowish-white  and makes the tea rich in amino acids.

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.
