Description

Cultivar: Koushun
Elevation: 450 m
Harvest Date: May 2019

This tea is from the remote, high mountain and deep forest eastern region of Tenryu Ward in Shizuoka, Japan. Tenryu high mountain valley tea gardens have a late first flush harvest schedule due to the short sunshine days and dramatic temperature shifts between day and night. We selected a special 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" (farmer's sickle-shaped pan fired tea). This micro- lot is a mid-steamed sencha with a slightly longer withering time applied during the initial processing phase to create a high point of floral and mochi-sweet fragrance notes in balance with inherent Tenryu characteristic flavor profile of tangy, citrusy, medium brisk body, balance of bittersweetness and lasting umami flavors.
