Rich Roasted Taste Due to Unique Steaming System
In the vast plateau of the Makinohara area, they use their own unique fertilization management system while replanting. With the soil infused with fertilizers rich in minerals, tea absorbs a high level of nutrients and becomes highly resistant to disease and insects. This area is rather flat and therefore receives a lot of sunlight which results in luxuriant leaves which are steamed not once but twice. Using Katayama’s unique double-steaming system creates an aromatic, rich tea. Replanting from seedlings for two generations means the following generation will also yield an excellent crop.
