  • This organic tea presents a robust, concentrated essence, boasting a distinctive flavour profile with a well-rounded, full-bodied astringency and a deep aroma with tones of citrus, grass, and berries. Noteworthy, too, is its ability to leave a refreshing and almond-like aftertaste that lingers, like an encore, on the palate.

  • Produced organically on a single estate by Ochatonomizawa Tea Garden located in Kumamoto, on the southern island of Kyushu, where tea was originally introduced to Japan from China in the 8th century.
About Okuyukata cultivar
Okuyutaka is a type of cultivar that literally translates as "deep rich". Oku means "deep” and Yutaka means "rich" or "abundant". As its name indicates, this cultivar is known for its deep green leaves and rich flavour.

About Tamaryokucha: 
The processing method for tamaryokucha follows that of sencha. The only difference is that the last step in processing, which is shaping, is omitted. The shaping stage gives the straight leaf appearance to the classic sencha leaf. As tamaryokucha is not shaped, the leaf retains the natural curl or coil shape.

Steeping Guide

  1. Pour hot water into the teacup and teapot first to warm them up. When the teacup is warmed up, throw away the hot water.
  2. When the teacups and teapot are warmed up, throw away the hot water and pour it back into the teapot.
  3. Put 5g of tea leaves in a teapot.
  4. Boil water and let cool down to 60℃ | 140°F
  5. Pour 150cc | 5oz water into the teapot, cover and wait 60 seconds.
  6. Pour into a teacup while gently shaking the kyusu.

Okuyutaka leaves can be steeped 3 times in a row to unfold new flavours at each steeping. Slightly increase temperature and decrease steeping time for each new steeping.
