Spring sencha harvested between late April to early May. 

Steaming: Takeo-san steams the leaves for a slightly longer time than usual sencha, so we have classified this as a fukamushicha.

Cultivars: Yabukita, zairai (grown from seed) blend

Pesticide use: Takeo-san uses no pesticides in cultivation and have isolated their tea fields away from other agricultural activities to prevent contamination. Of the some 20k tea farmers in Japan the Takeo family is one of a few family-operated artisan tea farms who have had their tea certified. 

JAS (Japan Agricultural Standard) certification mark
