1 item left


Harvested at the beginning of May when the young leaves of trees begin filling the mountains, this sencha from the fields of the mountain village of Ashikubo, Shizuoka, is named "kunpu" 薫風 after the gentle breeze blowing through these early leaves. 

An exquisite tea from the Ashikubo Teaworks farmers cooperative, this tea was lightly steamed to preserve its beautiful shape, and rolled into fine needles. Strong umami flavor with light notes of astringency.
