Description

Cultivar: Shizu-7132 "Machiko"
Elevation: 200m
Harvest Date: May 10, 2020

Japan is one of the many countries renowned for its tea agriculture and analysis of both existing and new cultivars. The Machiko cultivar, developed in the late 60's and early 70's, is prized by Japanese tea lovers for its distinctive cherry blossom aroma. Recently, Japanese food scientists identified the aromatic and antioxidant compound coumarin in Machiko tea leaves as responsible for the unique aromatics associated with this cultivar.

Mr. Sugiyama cultivated our Machiko selection and is the only farmer in Shizuoka who grows Machiko according to certified organic practices. This 2020 Crop first flush micro-lot offers intense notes of sakura mochi, cherry blossoms, fresh almonds and anisette cookies with a remarkable balance of bittersweet and umami. It is very lively and stimulating with refreshingly low tannin and smooth aftertaste.
