The Tsuyuhikari Cultivar
Tsuyuhikari is an uncommon cultivar crafted from the asatsuyu cultivar—known for its deep umami—and shizu7132—known for its cherry blossom-like aroma. Our producer crafted it two ways: as a medium-bodied, balanced sencha and as a uniquely rich hōjicha. Enjoy them side-by-side to compare how our Fukuoka tea producer's craftsmanship shapes a tea's profile.
