Description:
The Sayama tea-growing region in the areas of the cities Sayama and Iruma in Saitama Prefecture is known for rather deeply steamed (Sencha Fukamushi), long wilted Sencha and a variety of newly developed tea plant varieties. Long steaming produces darker, heavier teas, while withering brings in beautiful fruity-floral notes.

The producer Hiruma-san is not only a recognised expert in hand-rolled teas, but also very experimental and experienced - he leaves the tea bushes for his Senchas exceptionally long (25-31 days) under a batiste cloth with a shading degree of 75%. In this way he also makes his Sencha from different varieties a true experience.

Five teas of the same type, from the same origin, produced by the same tea processor, all from the spring harvest of 2021 - however each tea plant variety has its own characteristics.

Description:
Fukamushi are Senchas that are steamed for a longer period of time than is usual. This gives the tea more density and sweetness, which makes them rather palatable to the Japanese. Quite typical for the Japanese are the blends, where various varieties are put together in order to create a full sensory experience. For this tea the varieties Yabukita, Okumidori, Sakimidori, Tsuyuhikari and Saemidori have been used.

Tea plant varietal: Yabukita
25g / 55,00 CHF
incl. VAT
excl. shipping and handling


Available
Description:
A top hand-rolled Sencha. The exceptional quality of this tea is achieved by selecting leaves that have been tended to with great care, coming from excellently situated gardens. Hiruma-san is not only a well-known expert for hand-rolled teas, but he also likes to experiment, thus increasing his considerable experience, which allows him to make a remarkable Sencha even when using leaves from the quite common Yabukita tea plant.

Temomicha - a hand-rolled tea. This is rare in Japan, as the tea production is mostly mechanised. After steaming, the tea is produced on a type of heated table. This procedure can last for up to seven hours and requires great attention and care. Thus are produced very small quantities of tea of outstanding quality.
Character:
Intense, full, most aromatic and challenging. At the same time light, clear, tart and stimulatingly fresh.

The exceptional quality of this Sencha is characterised, among other things, by the carefully harvested pluck from the best location and conscious cultivation.

Hiruma-san is not only a well-known expert for hand-rolled teas, but he also likes to experiment, thus increasing his considerable experience, which allows him to make remarkable Senchas.

Sencha Zairai
3JSZ

Harvest: 16.05.2021
Origin: Japan / Shizuoka / Kawanehon
Height: 600 m.a.s.l
Tea plant varietal: Zairai
100g / 35,00 CHF
incl. VAT
excl. shipping and handling


Available
Description:
The leaves used for this tea come from trees that are over a hundred years old. Contrary to normal Sencha, where the leaves are being processed immediately after the plucking, the leaves of this tea have been left over night before being processed. This gives the tea a particular taste that is typical for this hilly region.

Zairai is the original Japanese tea variety, with its roots in China. Just like the local varieties in China, the Zairai have been reproduced through seeds, hence their genetic material is heterogeneous, contrary to the contemporary reproduction through cuttings.
