Availability for Purchase:


The very first pick from a farm is called Hatsutsumi (literally "first picking"), and tends to be the youngest leaf produced by a farm. This is a premium blend of leaves by refiner Kanes Tea from the first leaf pickings of farms in Shizuoka. 

After the shincha season, the product is called Kawaneji 川根路 (the road to Kawane).
