- 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.
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.
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.
