Hachimanjyu Yakushima Tea

  • Ingredients: Green tea
  • Cultivars: Kuritawase, Saemidori.
  • Harvest: Early April
  • Region: Yakushima Island, Kagoshima Pref, Japan

2019 harvest will be available in May.

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.
