The tea field is nestled between picturesque mountains. The tea plants are exposed to much fog as well as significant temperature fluctuations between day and night. An organic fertiliser made from rice bran is used to support the plants' growth.
Yoshinaga Seicha is known for its nicely balanced blends. For this hojicha, the tea master pairs yabukita with a selection of uncommon as well as typical Kyushu cultivars (kanayamidori, okumidori, zarai) that give the tea more umami and character. Only a few kilos of this tea are produced each year.
This tea is exclusively sourced from the above mentioned tea farm, Yoshinaga Seicha.
