About product

Competition grade sencha from Kagoshima Prefecture made from the Yabukita cultivar, which dominates the competitions. Yabukita has long been a standard variety in Japan and has a well-balanced grassiness with umami and sweetness and a pleasant rich flavour.

Competition tea is hand-picked from young tea plants when they have only one or two shoots. This requires two to three times as many hand pickers as traditional hand picking.

Only a limited quantity of this tea was produced. Thanks to our good relations, we have managed to get a few packages of this tea for you.
