This incredible green tea was made harvesting by hand 90-year old zairai varietal trees. It sat for one day, and the following day was lightly rolled in a bamboo drum and then hand-rolled exposing the leaves to a slow oxidation which was soon stopped. The result is a visually appealing, utterly atypical Japanese tea with a slight trace of oxidation (bihhako). The taste is delicate, light and sweet. This type of tea can handle more steepings than others Japanese teas.
