This yabukita sencha was grown amongst the mountains of Honyama, giving it a crisp, invigorating taste reminiscent of a cool mountain breeze.
Of Shizuoka's many tea-growing regions, tea from Honyama is praised for its transparent and elegant taste, deriving from the mineral rich soil and the subtle, natural shade of fog and mountains. Typically unshaded and lightly-steamed, honyamacha is known for its clear, crisp taste, and distinctive aroma, known as yama no kaori (山の香) or mountain aroma.
Hailing from the Uchimachi sector of Honyama, Matsuba is the perfect gateway to this classic style of sencha.
