Yamaguchi brings back a favourite, his Okumidori from his “Ninotani” micro-lot. He has poured his best efforts at natural tea production into this lot, creating the best example of unsprayed maccha from the region we have yet to taste. Complex and delicious, with striking pine aromatics and currant in the finish.
