Kabusecha Tsuyuhikari Narao
¥1,100 – ¥2,000
This single-origin Kabusecha is grown in one of the highest tea areas in Japan, at an altitude of 600 meters, where it snows in winter.
To bring out a rich sweetness, the tea bushes for this tea are shaded with synthetic black cloth for 20 days before harvest – longer than regular Kabusecha shaded for one to two weeks. It’s almost Gyokuro.
Tsuyuhikari is a rare cultivar with a rich sweetness. Whereas tea from this cultivar is usually deep-steamed during the tea production process, Mori-san, the producer of this tea, steamed it lightly to preserve the fresh mountain aroma.
Mori-san says “I grew this tea like it was my own child.” This tea is sweet like his personality:)
