Sencha from the town of Monou in what is now Ishinomaki City brews into a deep forest green with a strong astringency. With a 400 year history of tea farming, the town of Monou is the northernmost tea region, and the field managed by Sasaki-san is the northernmost tea field in Japan.

Monoucha Genmaicha blends Sasaki-san's sencha with toasted rice grains as well as rice cracker balls (plain and matcha flavored) for a uniquely toasted nutty flavor.

Sold by Yabe-en Tea Shop as "Datecha" 伊達茶, named after the famous samurai lord Masamune Date.

About Farmer Hiroshi Sasaki and Processor Susumu Yabe

Miyagi Prefecture was once a major tea production region with a summer climate similar to Shizuoka tea production regions (though colder in the winter). The last surviving tea field belongs to Sasaki-san who studied tea agriculture in the major tea production region of Kagoshima in the southernmost part of Japan's main four islands. Tea Master Susumu Yabe who lives just south of Ishinomaki aids in the processing of the tea into fine sencha.
