Very forgiving with a light astringency. Low floral notes combine with a woodsy aspect, reminicent of Nootka rose, and finish with a lasting sweetness on the tongue. Very enjoyable when cooled.
The rugged coastal mountains of the Kumano district offer ideal tea cultivation conditions, far from the polluted air of developed urban areas. Fresh sea winds promote healthy growth while the cool nights, contrasting with strong sunny days, stress the plants and develop complexitiy of character. Though not certified, Oizumi-san relies on the balance of nature and natural composting to grow premium organic tea.
