Note: Packages for most tea products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions where stated, click here to see info and photos).

This Yutaka Midori cultivar first flush sencha is a great balance between delicate flavor and reasonable pricing, a gem hiding quietly ("hisoka") among the great teas offered by Hachimanjyu.

Product Info

  • Cultivars: Yutaka Midori.
  • Harvest: April
  • Notes: grown pesticide free with organic fertilizer. Original product is certified organic (1 kg bag) and repacked at Yunomi office (repacked bags are not certified).
  • Steaming: Asamushi, or lightly steamed. This results a leaf that is kept more intact than longer steaming, and therefore results in a clearer, liquid that extracts more slowly from the leaf for multiple steepings. This type of steaming is usually reserved for higher quality leaf.
  • Steeping recommendation: We recommend the warm water steeping method. Steep it in a small amount at low temperature to enjoy the umami flavors more distinctly like gyokuro, then again at higher temperatures to release more flavors.
