About this tea

This shincha is a light steamed sencha from the Toyosawa area, Fukuroi, Shizuoka. This region sits at the foot of Mount Ogasa and is one of the primary growing regions of Shizuoka. The tea farms of this area have well-draining soil and large temperature differences between day and night that produce the distinctive flavors and aromatic complexity of the teas. The undulating terrain at the base of the mountain creates the rich flavor and aroma. This tea really stood out on the tasting table with its evergreen and fresh pine notes. It is like deep forest dew drops.
