TSUJI S35 MATCHA | 80% SAMIDORI, 20% YABUKITA
A new creation from Tsuji San: S35. This is a luscious tea made mostly with Samidori (one of the most coveted cultivars for shade grown tea), and spiced with Yabukita (the tea cultivar that accounts for more than 2/3 of Japanese tea); you will find an incredibly smooth tea, bright and aromatic, with lingering umami.
80% Samidori (さみどり) is an unregistered cultivar, originally from the Uji region, that is very popular for shade grown tea (like matcha and gyokuro).
20% Yabukita (やぶきた) is THE most popular cultivar in Japan, used for tea grown both under full sunshine and under shade.
About the Grower:
Tsuji Kiyoharu is a legend; a fifth generation tea grower, he is the only living matcha farmer to have received awards from the Emperor (3 times!). He has also earned multiple medals from Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. Tsuji Sensei started his quest of insane umami when he was only 20 years old; having asked some of the best know tea experts for advice, he invariable received the answer: ’start by learning in the fields’. And so he did; acknowledging that tea fields are a universe of ever-changing variables, Tsuji San has learned to ‘listen’ to his tea trees every single year. Organic fertilizer, shade, harvesting times and tea making techniques are adjusted accordingly. We can guarantee that every lot of tea from Tsuji San will be unique.
IMPORTANT: we offer this tea in 20g re-fill packs, freshly milled and packed by Tsuji San at origin. If you wish to add a Japanese airtight (collectible, re-usable) tin, please do so here.
