Description

The komakage cultivar was originally developed to make gyokuro. However, when made into a sencha, it evolves into tea with a refreshing green color that is well-rounded with a delicate sweetness. Perfect to enjoy with traditional Japanese desserts. Additionally, the Yoshino Tea Garden cultivated this komakage cultivar on a trial basis by their tea fields a long time ago and due to its' resilience to the cold, it has been a recommended variety in the Sayama/Saitama Prefecture region.
