Note: Packages for most tea & food products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions, click here to see info and photos). If you need the original Japanese package, please leave a note in the order comments.

A shincha labeled "hashiri" is one that is harvested extra early when the leaves are still very young. This is an O-hashiri, the "O" written with the character for "large". The implication is an extra extra early harvest, for a very delicate, young leaf.

Yakushima Island itself is a pristine, isolated location, designated a World Heritage site and home to one of the world's oldest trees (conservatively estimated at 1800 years old).
