Hakuyocha Zairai Mobata
¥1,600 – ¥2,900
The green tea leaves of this farm turn to a golden color during spring.
This young tea farmer, Tadashi Sugiyama, had a grandfather who one day found a yellow tea leaf in his tea farm. Tadashi’s grandfather and his son have continued to grow these natural leaves, little by little. Tadashi’s father finally succeeded in growing barely enough tea leaves to produce commercially.
Tadashi followed in his father’s footsteps and continues to protect this rare tea, which can still be produced in small amounts.
It has a rich sweetness like Gyokuro, but its aftertaste is more refreshing. If you like Gyokuro, you would enjoy it.
