This kuradashi sencha is a blend of spring harvests from multiple gardens, dehydrated, then brought to a stone castle on a mountain in Ikawa to age and mellow until autumn. Tea Master Kojima-San continues to produce this rare tea by the same traditions established in the Edo period. Umami, savory, yet not overpowering: the product of its maker's mastery. After the maturing period, his factory refined the tea with a signature hiire baking and final sorting in October. The aging process completely alters the spring leaf and produces a new flavor that complements cold months perfectly.
