This premium Kukicha is undoubtedly one of the best varieties. Harvested In May when the fine leaf shoots are at their best, Iwao Hayashi predominantly uses leaves of the Yabukita variety. The leaves from the tea plant Yabukita are dampened longer than usual, they are then steamed for a little longer, which gives the tea it's intense colour.

This tea offers a bright green cup and lends a fresh taste with a hint of sweetness, reminiscent of vanilla.

"This tea is one of the more delicate kukicha I've had. It has surprisingly lasted longer than i anticipated. One small teaspoon gives a nice cup. it tasted more like a fine green tea."
