<From the Farmer>
This variety was crossbred in Makurazaki, Kagoshima Prefecture. It has its origins in "Yabukita" and the Uji variety "Asatsuyu." It is susceptible to frost and long-term shading, but its distinct Umami is popular with many people. It is often used for Gyokuro, but it is likely to become more popular as a variety for Matcha.
*Precautions for storage: Store away from direct sunlight, heat and humidity. For long-term storage, refrigeration is recommended.
