Kabusecha Okumidori

$26.00

From the fields of family-operated tea farm, Tomizawa Tea Garden, a shincha shaded for about 2 weeks before early May harvest (making it a kabusecha). The Okumidori tea cultivar has been quite popular in recent years for its strong natural umami flavor (enhanced by the shading) and deep green color.

As a steamed tamaryokucha (or guricha), the leaves are not rolled into straight needles as you would see with sencha, but rather left slightly curled by skipping the last rolling step. 

Producer: Tomizawa Tea Garden

Established: 1928

Region: Mashiki, Kumamoto

Harvest Season:  Early May

Steaming: Slightly longer than regular steaming but retains shape well, so not quite fukamushi (deep steamed)
