Tamaryokucha Shin (芯) – Ohyama Seichaen, 60g
This Tamaryokucha is a single cultivar (Saemidori) ichibancha (spring) tea from award-winning tea farmer Ohyama 大山.
In 2020 Ohyama won the tea competition called “Norinsuisan Daijin Sho (農林水産大臣賞)”, and it is the award of Japanese Agricultural Minister which is one of the highest prizes in the Japanese tea world.
The leaves are really fine and small because only the finest pick has been used.
The colour of the tea leaves is dark green but shiny, and the size of leaves is quite even.
You should brew by warm water (60-70℃), not boiling water (100℃), and infuse for a minute.
If possible, brew with soft water if you can find it.
You can enjoy the dewdrops of the umami taste, and the smooth bitterness spreads your whole mouth. You can brew the tea many times.
Officially we would say that you can infuse the tea at least 3 times from same tea leaves, but this tea you can definitely infuse more times.
(Team member Matsu: “I wrote this article with the winning tea, I infused 5 times and more :)” )
We recommend the tea especially for tea lovers who want to know more Japanese tea.
This tea will be your indicator of Japanese tea.
