Shincha 2018 - New buds appearing at the gyokuro tea fields of Kuma Tea Gardens

March 22, 2018

Masahiro Kuma of Kuma Tea Gardens shows us the tiniest new buds appearing on the heritage grade gyokuro plants. This tea field produced a micro lot that won Kuma-san the top prize at 2017's National Tea Competition, earning him the Minister's Award for Gyokuro given by the Governor of Fukuoka. You can taste the micro lot produced one day before the winning micro lot here.
