Obubu Tea Farm: Otsukimi Sencha
Obubu Tea Farm Otsukimi "Autumn Moon" Sencha
Otsukimi (お月見) literally means 'moon viewing' and is closely associated with Japanese festivals celebrating the moon in Autumn. It is at this time of the year when the moon appears brightest, and the Japanese eat certain dishes such as tsukimi dango (round, white dumplings), edamame (soybeans), Japanese chestnuts, etc.
Obubu's Otsukimi Sencha or Sencha of the Autumn Moon was named after this Japanese tradition not only because it is harvested it in late September / early October when the festivals occur, but also because the tea leaves and stems produce a bright yellow-green sencha.
Product Info: This tea has much larger leaves than other sencha varieties. It is very easy to drink tea that has a mellow grassy flavour with slight astringency.
