The Story

- This top of the world sencha tea selection comes from our direct connections from Japan. Pieter Loridon also gets his Premium and Ceremonial quality matcha from these farms, where he went in June 2018 to get to know the owners and the matcha fields. -

This spring tea of the Yabukita cultivar is produced by a well known tea family in Makizono, Kagoshima.

This tea is composed of leaves grown in a field covered 10 days before harvest so that they can develop a mellower flavor than traditional Japanese sencha which are absolutely not covered from the sun before harvest. Its leaves have a very beautiful thin needle shape and a dark and glossy green color.

The cultivar Yabukita is used for the production of 70% of Japanese green teas, and is especially fit for the production of balanced sencha revealing both a round umami and a deliciously refreshing vegetal flavor. Our Sencha Yabukita offers a very deep savory flavor with sweet and mellow notes at lower temperature, and develops a subtle astringency at higher temperature. This tea perfectly expresses the quintessence and balance of Japanese sencha.

Be mindful when brewing this to use lower temperature water, to prevent scalding the leaves.
