Harvested from the fields of Kyoto in early May, with leaves carefully selected and refined by Takashi Nishide, this "Ohashiri" is an extra early harvest of fine, young, delicate green tea leaves.

Only about 50kg of this leaf was harvested in 2023, and Nishide-san called us excitedly to say that this was the best he has ever seen organic sencha from the Uji region of Kyoto due to the excellent weather. Though shaded for 15 days, it is best described as a high quality umami rich sencha rather than a more powerfully umami soaked kabusecha.
