Is Harumoegi the next great Japanese tea variety? Grandchild of the ubiquitous Yabukita cultivar, Harumoegi strikes the perfect balance between heartiness, refinement and flavor in the infused cup. It is still a relatively new and obscure variety (only cultivated since 2003), but carries excellent, clean umami and sweetness. Shaded for twenty-one days before handpicking—it is produced by our friend, Yuu Kobayashi, a twelfth generation master producing some of the best examples of shade grown tea in Japan.
