Osada Tea: 2022 Shincha Spring Green Tea

Shinme no Ibuki, Ohashiri


Utilizing early budding cultivars, this is an Ohashiri - (literally "big run" in running fast to the fields to pick the leaves!). As a shincha or new tea, this is a limited edition version of Osada Tea's Shinme no Ibuki (breath of new leaves).

This green tea is processed as Fukamushi, meaning it has been deeply steamed, for a rich, fresh spring flavour.
