This excellent green tea from Jun Chiyabari has been produced using the Japanese-technique of shading high-quality green tea few weeks before harvest. Due to the intensity of work involved in making this tea, only 700 gram was made this summer. We are glad we managed to secure this lot for our customers!

DRY LEAF: Deep emerald green with a sweet creamy vegetal notes. Precisely selected young leaves and buds.

INFUSION: The vibrant green of the leaves yield a highly pleasing fruity, vegetal and prominently sweet nose.
