YABUKITA's TEZUMI with ASAMUSHI finish is a traditional tea, shaped like a needle. Recognized as the highest quality tea presented to the Emperor, it is referred to as Empire Grade Tea.
This top-tier tea is produced exclusively in the TENRYU area of Japan in limited quantities each year.
Rather than focus on organic certification, the producers prioritize quality, delivering a naturally low pesticide and fertilizer level while ensuring a great flavor profile.
This makes it compliant with European Union import regulations.
The story behind of production
The heat is elevated to allow the tea leaves to expand and draw out the subtle sweetness of the mountain-sourced tea.
