A high -end tea renowned for its fine and delicate taste. Its origins date back to the Edo era, more precisely in 1835. It was obtained by shading the tea trees for three weeks before their harvest. By obscuring almost all of the light, they become richer in theine, lose in tannins and take their characteristic dark color.

Its taste, both rich and delicate, is characterized by its Umami and its subtly sweet vegetable notes. Due to its strong tea content, it is perfect for restoring energy after lunch. It can be tasted hot as cold, accompanied by light pastries or fruit to create interesting taste harmonies.

Its culture represents less than 1% of the total production of green tea in Japan. Its rarity, the constraints necessary for its culture and the fact that it was once very appreciated by the nobles explains that it is thus estimated by the Japanese.
