Cultivation & Processing Notes: Cultivated with a traditional method involving the layering of straw directly onto the tea plants as shading. Doing so deepens the umami savoriness of the leaves by cutting off sunlight, and simultaneously imparts complexity to the flavor from the straw. Deep steamed.
