Sencha Sofu Ryougochi


Sofu is a rare tea cultivar which has a unique aroma like jasmine.

The tea leaves of this Sofu grew on a steep tea plantation at 350 meters/1,150 ft. above sea level, where a sea of clouds spreads out below. Jiro Katahira, a young and passionate tea farmer, harvested tender leaves in spring, and carefully turned them into beautiful needle-shaped tea using small, old-fashioned machines.
