Product specificity 商品説明

Chiran tea is made from tea leaves grown in Minamikyushu, a city located in the prefecture of Kagoshima, Japan.

A first-grade tea full a nutrients

During the winter tea trees load with nutrients. As spring arrives these perennials come to life in the warm spring sunshine. Fresh new buds and young leaves appear on the tea bushes and make the most exquisite chiran tea. Leaves from the second harvest are called nibancha and likewise leaves from the third and fourth harvest are called sanbancha and yonbancha. Harvesting frequency mostly depends on the zone. Theanine contained in tea changes into catechin when the plant is exposed to direct sunlight. It results in a tea high in astringency. Hence, this first flush premium chiran tea tastes wonderful.
