KYUSHU ISLAND TASTING FLIGHT - O-FIVE RARE TEA BAR

KYUSHU ISLAND TASTING FLIGHT

$53.00

  • This is a promotional tasting flight available for one week only. 
    We wanted to enable you to try 2 extremely different cultivars from the same grower, and yet another cultivar (and style) from a distant region of the same island. 

    ASATSUYU | 40g
    A customer favourite at O5, this vibrant sencha is known as "natural gyokuro" and yields notes of green melon, fresh grass and umami. 

    Shutaro and Kenji Hayashi are fifth-generation tea farmers. They are not only exceptional organic tea growers but also stewards of the land. We were very impressed by their farming practices: bees and spiders to control pests, goats and geese to control weeds. 
    They are very proud of their single cultivar teas, which express very unique notes each harvest. 

    YABUKITA FUKAMUSHI | SINGLE CULTIVAR | 40g
    This sencha features notes of sea breeze, watercress and tropical fruit. 
    Yabukita is currently the most wide-spread cultivar in Japan. It has a rich, vibrant character; it also has very generous yields and adapts easily to a variety of Japanese regions. The Yabukita cultivar was developed by Hikosaburo Sugiyama in the early 20th century. Fun fact -- If you Google that gentleman, you will notice a very high resemblance to O5's Geoff Sugiyama. 

    The Yabukita Fukamushi is also grown by the Hayashi family mentioned above. 

    YAME KABUSECHA | SINGLE CULTIVAR GOKOU | 40g
    Full-bodied sencha with notes of tropical fruit and kale. 

    Oishi San's tea factory was established in 1940, a very turbulent period in Japan's history. The company has since flourished. 
    Oishi San owns tea fields in the region, but also sources leaves from a wide diversity of micro farmers, finishing the tea at his facility in Yame.
