DescriptionMade from Yabukita cultivar, this organic fukamushi (deep-steamed) tamaryokucha produced by Takahashi-san has a vibrant green liquor. Its striking dark green leaves will continue to delight you as you enjoy each cup. Notes of toasted hazelnut and Brussels sprouts are accented by subtle nuances of dried mango and magnolia. This tea has a full body with complex umami characteristics and a lingering vegetal sweetness.
As soon as you open the tea bag, your interest will be piqued by the sweet perfume of this premium tamaryokucha that will remind you of caramelized nuts with a hint of mango. Its deep jade color and its pretty curly leaves (typical of tamaryokucha) are also very nice.
Contrary to sencha, you can brew this tamaryokucha in only 30 seconds.

Established in 1963, the Takahashi green tea factory is located in Usuki (Oita pref., Eastern Kyushu) and produces organic green tea since 2001. It was the first green tea farm in Oita to receive the organic JAS certification in 2001.Takahashi san is now the second generation of his family to lead his business and is specialized in tamaryokucha, a green tea known for its jade color (tama), quite similar to sencha, but whose leaves have a curly shape, and not needle-like. The very last stage of the processing method is different: the tea leaves are put inside drums and dried with hot air.
