Ogura Tea Garden

Yuki and Junko Ogura moved to Odawara from Tokyo a decade ago to pursue a life closer to nature, and engage in their passion for tea. Learning from the tea farmers in Ashigara, the town just north of Odawara City, they cultivate tea without the use of pesticides.

This sencha utilizes standard Yabukita cultivar tea plants, and is steamed slightly shorter than normal (asamushi). It produces a grassy flavor profile.
