Traditionally, Autumn is another big day for green tea since harvest in Spring. The tea harvested from April to May will be put into a pot and stored in low temperature (i.e. Potted Tea, 壷切茶 or tsubokiri cha). The tea leaves will then be idle for half a year, losing their grassy aroma and flavour. In return, full umami and sweetness will be generated before releasing them in Autumn to make gyokuro, sencha, or matcha.
The Potted Tea is available now for Pre-Order (2 weeks reservation). First batch will arrive in mid-October if ordered on / before 1-October.
