Rare terakawa-wase cultivar sencha grown and processed by the Shimizu family of Suizawa, Mie Prefecture. The leaves are first covered by a translucent veil in March to protect them against wind and cold air (that could create damaging frost), then covered for about two weeks in late April (in 2019, April 19th) to create an extra boost of umami flavor. Perhaps, if you are unsure to go all in on this cultivar, the Marushige Shimizu Tea Farm also has a four cultivar comparison set in which one of the cultivars is a Terakawa-wase. 

A note about the Terakawa-wase cultivar: A cultivar that was developed for matcha, this cultivar was selected out of seedlings from a native tea plant in Uji, Kyoto Prefecture and registered in 1990.
