Origins

Hamada Estate Chiran, Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan

Process

The Hamada family has been making tea for three generations in Chiran, which is one of the best and largest tea producing regions in Japan. The first plucking, which occurs during the first 80 days of Spring, contains more antioxidants and flavor than later harvests. This first plucking is much sought after and revered in Japanese culture. The steaming process is called Asamushi (light steaming), which allows the natural flavor of this tea to shine.
