HEIRLOOM (ZAIRAI) FUKAMUSHI SENCHA

$18.00

  • A thirst quenching, 'country style' sencha that is delicious both warm and iced.  

    Unlike its Asatsuyu sibling, this tea is no umami bomb; the hardier, heirloom old bushes yield instead a lighter, thirst quenching brew.

    ABOUT THE CULTIVAR 

    These are the oldest trees in Hayashi San’s farm. The seeds came from Shizuoka, five generations ago; the old tea plants are still in the ground! This Zairai produces wilder and vibrant tea. Try using lower temperature water (60 degrees) or cold brew.

    ABOUT THE GROWER

    The Hayashi family are 5th generation farmers. Over 100 years ago, the first Hayashi brought tea seeds from Shizuoka Prefecture 静岡県 - the major green tea producer of Japan. Those trees are still alive now! And they make Zairai Fukamushi. In the 1950's, the Kirishima growers were pioneers in the use of pesticides. In the 1980's, they were the first farm in the region to go organic, and have remained so since. Having inherited a historical culture of tea cultivation and production, the current generation growers are nonetheless innovative and unorthodox. They experiment with non-traditional tea production, such as various single-cultivar sencha; matcha made of special samidori leaves; and green tea paste that tastes awesome in nitro.
