About the climate

Climate:
Surrounded by other farms. Almost no trees around, which makes that the farm receives abundant sunlight.

Surroundings and environmental circumstances
Steep sloping surface, which makes harvest labor intensive, but has the benefit that water drainage is good. Since no fertilizer was used during the bush’s growth, the impact from the soil on the flavor is direct. The authentic aroma of this cultivar adds to the tea’s appeal.

A creamy bowl of raspberry fruity and dark chocolate sweet naturally produced matcha.
