Oku yutaka is a single estate sencha green tea (Mushisei Tamaryokucha) from Higashi Sonogi in the Nagasaki prefecture of Japan. The leaves are lightly steamed, in the customary process of Japanese green tea, but they are not kneaded into the traditional needle shape, instead encouraged to form their natural, unbroken coiled shape. This tea is characterized by its suppressed astringency, lofty hints of unmami and mellow, green flavor. The tea brews clear and emerald green.
This distinct tea was made by renowned Sakurai Tea Company of Tokyo in collaboration with Wonder Valley, we’re proud to be the exclusive source for this tea brand outside of Japan.
