The Okabe farmers cooperative in Japan offers us this green tea in the Gyokuro style produced following the covered method of cultivation giving it its characteristic taste from shade.
This organic bancha from the Kagoshima region in southern Japan meets all the criteria for a great everyday green tea.
Once infused, its flat dark green leaves produce a thirst-quenching, herbaceous liquor with typical marine notes of this terroir.
It is perfect for a first approach to Japanese teas.
