Description

A blended, unshaded sencha coming from well-known tea farmer Uejima-san's Wazuka tea fields. The two cultivars, okumidori and tsuyuhikari both originate from Shizuoka prefecture. Okumidori, which one may be more familiar with is a well-rounded and mellow cultivar which perhaps does best when combined with another cultivar (of course, this depends on personal preference!). Uejima-san combined this Wazuka sencha premium with the tsuyuhikari (meaning "dew light") cultivar which is known for its high umami taste and refreshing color. It also has a fresh aroma and is delicately floral. Yes, this sencha is a dance of these two cultivars coming from the famous tea producing region of Wazuka!

About Tea Farmer: Noriyasu Uejima

Noriyasu Uejima is a tea master. In the 90+ year old tea tasting competition held in Kyoto, he is the only winner to ever achieve a perfect score. Cultivating and processing some of Kyoto's finest teas, the Ritz Carlton Hotel of Kyoto features his teas in their line up for guests. He is the 5th generation master farmer carrying on a tradition that dates back to the mid-19th century when his ancestor started the Uejima family as a branch family of an even older main family. The farm also operates the Wazuka Village's Wazuka Cha Cafe.
