The Honyama district of Shizuoka Prefecture has prospered since the Ieyasu era as the source of the Tokugawa family's official tea. The tea plantation is in a rugged mountainous area surrounded by steep terrain in the upper reaches of the Abe River. The difference in temperature between day and night has allowed mountain tea production that brings out the full flavor of the tea's true nature.
Moriuchi-san is quite an eccentric character in such a long-established tea production area, Honyama. He produces not only sencha but also black tea, oolong tea, kettle-fired tea, and all other types of tea, growing as many as 20 cultivars, including those under testing.
Among them, "Shizukaori" is a very rare cultivar that we rarely encounter. The "Shizukaori", produced by Moriuchi-san, a master of aromatic teas, has a complex and gorgeous herb-like aroma that is simply outstanding. The aroma of cherry blossoms and lavender comes and goes, followed by the fresh scent of fresh leaves, and the various aromas delight us so much that we never get tired of drinking them.
We hope you will try brewing this tea in multiple ways to bring out the charm of its aroma.
