US$9.85
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.
  • Cultivars: Yutaka Midori.
  • Harvest: April, 2016.
  • Notes: grown pesticide free with organic fertilizer. Original product is certified organic (1 kg bag) and repacked at Yunomi office (repacked bags are not certified).
  • Steaming: Asamushi, or lightly steamed. This results a leaf that is kept more intact than longer steaming, and therefore results in a clearer, liquid that extracts more slowly from the leaf for multiple steepings. This type of steaming is usually reserved for higher quality leaf.
  • Steeping recommendation: We recommend the warm water steeping method. Steep it in a small amount at low temperature to enjoy the umami flavors more distinctly like gyokuro, then again at higher temperatures to release more flavors.
