Single origin, single estate, single cultivar.

The term "hashiri" means "running" literally. It implies that the farmers have run out to the tea fields to harvest the leaves at earliest point possible.

This particular tea was cultivated by tea farmer Yuya Murata using the Chagusaba Tea Agriculture Method, a UNESCO designated Agricultural Heritage. Deep steamed into a fukamushicha for a strong bodied taste.

Flavor Notes

Strong body, grassy astringency, complex vegetal flavors. This profile is likely a result of the lack of shading. Slightly buttery aftertaste with very slight hints of umami. Suitable for those who dislike the umami of shaded teas. 

Steeping Notes

As a fukamushi, this product steeps very fast. We recommend tea: 5 grams, time: 60 seconds, water: 70C/160F, 200 ml. But if this is too strong for you, reduce the amount of leaves or the time. Use a hotter temperature for even stronger body, lower temperature (or even cold steeping) for a sweeter profile.
