This is a single-origin tea “Yume-Wakaba”. This year’s “Yume Wakaba” is a delicious tea with a strong taste and a lot of sweetness. The tea has been wilted in a wilting machine for 6 hours, which gives it its original floral aroma stronger. The tea is steamed for 120 seconds, which gives its tea colour a very deep green.
No additives such as sugar, flavors, or seasonings are used.
The astringency and bitterness of Japanese tea comes from a component called catechin.
Catechins are a type of polyphenol with strong antioxidant and antibacterial properties.
The power of catechins for a healthy life!
