2021 tencha Okumidori from the Ohbuku lot from Yamaguchi. Harvested May 31 and in our hands on June 4. Mighty. Spray free. Tasting notes of raspberry, sesame and fresh spinach.
Tencha is a mid process moment, the shade grown, deveined, destemmed and dried flat leaf that is almost ready to mill. From here it will be transformed from “ara-tencha” (rough tencha – cupped to give us a sense of what the final product will be) to “shiage-tencha” (finished tencha – cut and finished in preparation for milling). We then mill, pack down, and send off to our lovely wholesale and retail customers.

Our goal is to act as nodes of knowledge for the maccha world outside of Japan. This means that what we learn often shifts or augments the information here and there are always updates worth checking out on our website. A plethora of info on what defines maccha, how to understand it, prepare it, and the best maccha and tools we can source for sale will meet the curious reader.
It is our hope that we can effect change in the tea industry by encouraging small batches of fresh tea being imported, rather than the current norm of buying in massive volume and selling aging stock from a hot and stuffy warehouse. We hope to encourage traceability so that our customers know when the tea was harvested, when it was prepared, where it’s from, and how the workers are treated.
