In refining his shincha tea leaf harvest, tea farmer Tomizawa-san removes the stems of the leaves. These stems are gathered up to create shira-ore, called kukicha in other parts of Japan, or leaf stem tea. The stems have an relatively more sweet flavors and less astringency than the leaf itself and make great iced teas.

While this is an early May harvest, we are planning to procure this in June to spread out management of incoming teas.
