Description

Cultivar: Koushun
Elevation: 350 m
Harvest Date: May 15, 2020

This tea is from the remote, high mountain and deep forest tea gardens of the eastern region of Tenryu Ward in Shizuoka, Japan. Tenryu high mountain valley tea gardens have a much later first flush harvest schedule due to the limited days of sunshine and dramatic differences between daytime and nighttime temperatures. We selected a specialized Shizuoka cross-breed cultivar named Koushun from the Mother of Kurosawa and the Father of Kanayamidori tea bushes. Koushun is favored for specialized oxidized teas and kamairicha, (pan-fired, farmer's sickle shaped tea). This micro-lot of Tenryu grown Koushun was processed in this kamairi style with applied and innovative special withering to evoke a character of high mountain oolong tea with a balance of umami, gentle roast and complex florals.
