The Dream of Suruga is a poetic homage to the antiquated name for Shizuoka. The tea is a first harvest shincha. ‘Yume Suruga’ was crossed in the eighties from ‘Yabukita’ and the soft-leaved, Gyokuro variety ‘Okuhikari’. It was selected for its color and an enticing natural sweetness and officially registered in 2012. Touting mouth watering umami and savoriness, with melt-in-mouth texture, this is a full-flavor experience and testament to expert soil management of the Moriuchis. Tea trees grow naturally and upright, which puts machine harvesting out of the question. Hand harvesting, virtually extinct in Japan, comes at an opportunity cost of at least 60% loss in yield but to those classicists of Shizuoka, its a risk well-worth taking. Notes of sweet corn, baby asparagus, and nori.
