Background: Our own unique blend of teas produced annually by two neighbouring micro-scale tea farmers we visited on a sourcing trip in 2017. Located in the mountains near Yame on Kyushu - Japans southernmost main island. Both tea farmers have in recent years converted to organic production methods in order to produce pristine tea with minimal impact to the vibrant local natural environment.  The blend comprises a deep steamed rich tasting Yabukita Sencha from young tea farmer Jiro-san with a beautifully fragrant high end Shiraore tea made by his elderly neighbour Yorozu-sama. The result is a truly delicious tea representing the pure and clean taste of the local Yame mountain terroir.

Having renovated a disused farmhouse in the Yame mountains in 2015, young tea farmer Jiro-san has taken on several abandoned tea fields, learning tea cultivation alongside the expert guidance of his neighbour Yorozu-sama. Yorozu has lived in the local village all his life, and growing tea for over 40 years. In his younger years he once entered a National tea contest for growing Gyokuro and in the top 6 in Japan winning a Golden award! Tasting this tea, you will soon understand why!

Brewing guide: 2.5grams per 250ml, brewed at 70C for 2min30s. This equates to about 2 level teaspoons. Water should be caught just under the boil and add ¼ cold water to ¾ hot water to get the right temperature. This tea also makes fantastic iced tea when cold infused in the fridge overnight! Suitable for multiple infusions.
