A premium sencha coming from the Yokota Tea Garden which was picked on the 88th night (Japanese: 八十八夜; hachijyu-hachiya). According to the traditional Japanese lunar calendar, hachijyu-hachiya signifies the 88th night after the start of spring and is also used to mark the start of shincha harvesting. Tea from this harvest is said to bring you a fortuitous life. Meanwhile the first picking of the season is called hatsutsumi. Early picking of younger leaves generates a tea with an extra delicate and sweeter flavor profile with an aroma full of early summer. The younger leaves were then deep steamed to make a fukamushicha. Grown by 4th, 5th, and 6th generation tea farmers in the famous Sayama region of Saitama Prefecture.
