Loose leaf tea /Finished aging /MIxed
100% Hand-picked first flush tea
This is a small bag of Tencha.
The contents are the same as the regular bag of Tencha.
Tencha, the raw material for Matcha, is stored under strict control until autumn after picking tea in spring. During the long time of half a year, umami and taste of Tencha will increase in depth and mellowness. After the aging period, the immaturity and sharpness of the spring scent are softened, and the "Ooika" similar to the scent of fresh green seaweed becomes even more fragrant.
In the world of Japanese tea ceremony, there is a tea event called 口切 Kuchikiri . In the spring, the 茶人 Chajin,master of tea entrusts the tea jar to the 茶師 Chashi,tea manufacturer who fills the tea jar with tencha and seals it tightly. Around November,the 茶人 unseals the tea jar, grinds the Tencha in it with a stone mill, and taste the tea of the year. It is a very important and joyful event for 茶人.
You can enjoy Tencha as Matcha by grinding it with a stone mill, or you can enjoy it as leaf tea using a teapot.
