Tsuyuhikari

$8.10
Origin:
Japan

This tea is a "pure tea," meaning all the tea leaves were plucked from one cultivated varietal, the Tsuyuhikari hybrid. In other words, it is not blended. Tsuyuhikari, meaning 'shining dew' has a sweet taste and mouthwatering salty aromas of pelagic scents, seaweed, and summer maritime shores.

Ingredients

Hand-plucked young buds of single provenance from the cultivar of the same name, grown by Konishi-san, a small tea farmer in Shizuoka, Japan.

Brewing Iced Tea

As with some of our other extremely fine loose-leaf teas, we do not recommend drinking Tsuyuhikari over ice.
