Sencha , Organic, Variety Zairai, Hayashi Family, Kirishima Tea
For the production of the tea, Shutaro Hayashi chooses the old variety Zairai,( which means “native”. As this tea is not a plant endemic from Japan, we understand by Zairai the descendents of the first tea trees arrived from China) and he manufactures this tea by two different types of steaming that he later on combines. This way, a part of the leaves are deeply steamed which gives them a round and sweet flavour whilst with a shorter steaming they will have more freshness and fragance.
