This Okumidori cultivar kabusecha is part of Sueyoshi’s Furusato no Hana series (郷里の華) comes from the increasingly popular Okumidori cultivar. Literally, “hometown flower”, the name will conjure up feelings of nostalgia for the countryside, transporting you to the tea fields of the Soo region on the Southernmost main island of Japan, Kagoshima. 

The delicate dance of sweetness, bitterness and umami, results in a deeply refreshing tea experience. With the first sip, you sense the umami melting in your mouth. With the second sip, a perfect combination of sweetness and bitterness follows. This tea will leave a soft, gentle impression in your mouth.  

Mataki Tatefumi practices the Chagusaba agricultural method for growing tea leaves in which grass (primarily suzuki) grown around the fields are cut, dried, and laid between the tea hedges to prevent weed growth and to fertilize the soil.
