A special, Limited Edition shincha from Shizuoka, this tea was handpicked for perfect leaf shape and quality, light steamed (asamushicha, again to preserve shape), and finally handrolled for 4-5 hours by master tea craftsman Komatsu Yukiya to create these perfect needles. An experience for all tea connoisseurs, expect a translucent yellow liquor, with feathery, dry, green notes that bring you into the spring tea fields and a lingering buttery aftertaste.

Yama no Ibuki means “breath of the mountain” and is one less common cultivar. It was developed from a seed from a Yabukita cultivar plant.

Of course you should remember that the leaf is only one factor that affects the flavor of the final tea, but given the exact (which is impossible) same cultivation, processing, storage, and steeping conditions, this cultivar is known to have more theanine and amino acids (higher umami) while having less catechin (lower bitterness) than Yabukita. It also flushes about 4-5 days earlier than Yabukita.

NOTES - Packaging may change for 2024. Cultivar is likely to remain Yama no Ibuki, but it also depends on the quality of the harvest.
