Hoshino Kabuse Sencha Kirari 31

The tea leaves for this Kabuse Sencha were picked in the famous village Hoshino in Yame. Hoshino means translated “star field”. A fitting name as in this remote mountain valley the stars shine especially bright. Kabuse Sencha from mountain valleys such as Yame are a rarity because, due to the lower temperatures, the harvest starts about a month later than in deeper and shallower growing areas. The lower temperatures, however, lead to more intense and complex aromas.

Kirari 31

This remarkable new cultivar that was officially registered in 2015 and has swiftly gained widespread recognition.
