Description

Harvested by hand from a small field tucked in the mountains, Kiya san puts all his knowledge to produce years after years this amazing hon-gyokuro. The covering material of hon-gyokuro is not the usual black synthetic fibers, but natural rice straw called “sumaki”, which blocks at least 95 percent of the sunlight over the bushes for at least 20 days. Once one or more leaves appear from the new buds, the tea bushes are covered to block out sunlight. This tea yields great notes of iodine and fresh grass. These tastes will stay on your palate long after you have finished your cup. A rare tea, Satori requires great attention in its preparation, especially in the control of water temperature.
