This regular steamed sencha was crafted with tea leaves from a new tea field, generally 4-5 years old, a new born in the 30-50 year life of a Japanese tea field. The Shimizu family of Suizawa, Mie Prefecture, thus names this product Ubugoe 産声, meaning “the cry of a newborn”.

This year’s Ubugoe tea field is cultivar Saeakari, a descendant of Saemidori and a cultivar called Z1, and known to produce a vibrant, bright green color and sweet flavor. 


Tasting notes

Strong notes of grassiness, astringency, and hints of melon that balance the grassiness with sweetness.
