KasugaYakuso-ten focuses on preserving and respecting nature, keeping the Japanese tea tradition alive through its hand-picked and dried teas. While 97% of tea grown in Japan is an improved species, KasugaYakuso-ten specializes in growing the original heirloom species of tea that came from China. Tea and medicinal herbs have a rich tradition in the Mt. Ibuki area of Gifu Prefecture, starting over 1,000 years ago. A famous feudal lord of the area, Oda Nobunaga, even had a private herb garden there. KasugaYakuso-ten uses traditional methods to grow and harvest their tea leaves, without the use of any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Thus, all their tea products are completely organic.
SennenBijinIbukiHeirloom Vintage Tea (Fall Crop)
This tea is made from the heirloom species which was originally brought to Japan from China over 1,000 years ago, and only 3% of the tea production in Japan is from this species. This is an especially rare tea, because among this species, only a very small amount is produced in the fall annually. Harvesting in the fall increases the amino acid content in the tea, providing it with a rich umami flavor.
Hot:Place 1 tea bag in a tea cup or small tea pot. Boil water and let cool until it is around 160 F (70 C) degrees and then pour 7 – 10 fl.oz (200 – 300 ml) of the water into vessel with tea bag and steep for 2 minutes. If using a teapot, serve into each tea cup evenly, a small amount at a time, until the final drop is poured.
Cold: Place 2 to 3 tea bags in 1 liter of water and refrigerate for 8 hours.
