Japan: Okuyutaka Tamaryokucha

$ 30.00

100% Okuyutaka cultivar grown naturally without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizer and grown in the mountainside away from traffic pollution.  This tea is grown and processed by an award winning tea maker who makes some of the best tamaryokucha and kamairi in Japan.  Tamaryokucha is a style of Japanese green tea that is almost the same as sencha except that it is not rolled or shaped into long thin needles so it has a curly appearance.  It is also put through a hoiro and slightly baked, which kills some of the astringency of normal sencha and enhances the flavor and aroma.  Extremely Limited!
