About this tea

Matcha Tsuyuhikari is made purely from a single tea cultivar, Tsuyuhikari ( 露 光), which means “dew light.” Tsuyuhikari is harvested right in the middle of the spring season and is celebrated for its venerable, Gyokuro-like umami character. The savory feeling of Tsuyuhikari reverberates on the palate long after the first sip, concluding with a refreshing aromatic hint of pine, Sakura and floral oolong tea. This Organic, Ceremonial quality expression of Matcha Tsuyuhikari is produced in the beautiful Kirishima Mountain volcanic region of southern Japan.

Origin

Kirishima Mountain

Kagoshima, Japan

Kirishima Mountain is an active volcano on Japan's southern island of Kagoshima. The mineral rich volcanic soils of Kirishima Mountain create a perfect environment for growing organic teas. Because Kagoshima is situated in the southern region of Japan, the teas grown here are among the first to emerge during the Shincha season in early spring, sometimes even one full month before the northern regions begin to flush. Kirishima Mountain teas are noted for their lively green color and balance of umami with vibrant green bittersweetness.
