TAISHO 10 | HEIRLOOM, CENTENARIAN TREE SENCHA
Featured in our August Steamed Tea Club subscription.
A window into the past! These hardy, chunky and wonderfully flavourful leaves come from a handful of trees that were planted in the Taisho Era (30.07.12 - 25.12.26).
Tasting Experience: a walk in a forest packed with fiddleheads and conifers, right after the rain.
Taisho Era: 30.07.12 - 25.12.26
Origin: Koya, Wazuka (Kyoto), Japan | 34.7ºN 135.8ºE
Grower: Tanaka Yohei San has a small farm on very steep land in Wazuka. He is particularly fond of a corner of his garden, reserved mostly for family and friends where (we quote): "I do not have to calculate the cost and other things, I can express my passion in this tea without any constraint.” The trees that produced this tea are in such corner. This tea is meant to follow no conventions or standards; is meant to express some the aroma of some venerable old trees that make Tanaka San (and us) very happy.
