A single cultivar Yabukita sencha from farmer Konagai Chizuko and her husband, this light-steamed sencha has a light, delicate flavor and aroma with strong but not overwhelming hints of toastiness. Grown on mountain-top tea fields in the remote Kiyosawa Village, in the mountains of Eastern Shizuoka, the clarity of the air and water of this locale shines through with the light steaming production.
Kiyosawa Village is the old name for the this mountainous region of the Aoi Ward, Shizuoka City, and means "pure river". The Kuromata River 黒俣川 runs through the area.
