This is the tea that is traditionally brewed in the Japanese tea ceremony "Chanoyu". To produce tea of the highest quality, only the best young leaves harvested from April to May are used. After the long and strenuous picking and processing, the leaves are grounded using stone mills into a fine powder, which is brewed by whisking it in water. This tea has a very unusual delicate, creamy texture, and a sweet and fresh taste. This is a very healthy drink that has retained the maximum amount of vitamins and microelements. This tea is also the record holder for caffeine.
