Imari-cha grown in the heart of mountains in Imari, Saga Prefecture in Kyushu. Produced as tamaryokucha, a type of green tea that is processed like sencha but omits the last rolling step that straightens the leaves. This produces a leaf that is slightly curled.
Imperial Imari Sencha - Sachi no Kiwami 幸の極み is a type of kabusecha in which the new buds are shaded with double shades, cutting the sunlight to retain L-theanine and reduce catechins. As a result, the tea becomes rich in umami with natural sweetness in taste.
