Detail
A superb variety whose velvety texture helps extend its intense marine, grassy, and fruity notes for a truly refreshing cup of tea!

In Japan, the Ichibancha (“first harvest”) period is the most prized for green teas, and it holds additional symbolic value, like everything associated with the renewal of the seasons in this country.
Tamaryokucha is a Japanese green tea. The leaves are first steamed, then rolled in a heated drum. The leaves form small balls known as “tama” in Japanese, hence the name Tamaryokucha (Ryokucha means “green tea”). This differentiates it from traditional senchas, which have folded leaves. This tea was developed in the 1930s to try to break into the North African market and compete with Gunpowder. Although this tea is found in other regions today, like Shizuoka, Tamaryokucha originates from the island of Kyushu in southern Japan.


François-Xavier Delmas' choice:
“With this Tamaryokucha Premium I’m between land and sea. It transports me to Brittany, with its vegetal notes and especially the iodine, marine notes that are powerful and varied: a walk along the shoreline at low tide.”

Specificities:
- Origin: Miyazaki, Japan
- Tea color: green tea

Dry leaves:
- Appearance: small rolled leaves, shaped like commas
- Color: dark green with a shiny appearance
- Scents: very aromatic, pronounced vegetal, fruit (berries, black fruits), marine (fich, crustaceans), with mint, white flower and vanilla hints

Brewed leaves (infusion):
- Scents: vegetal, prononced fruit, zesty notes, marine notes (fish flesh, crustaceans), white flower aromas to finish, fresh butter

Liquor:
- Color: pale green
- Texture: velvety right from the start, giving this tea a really good presence
- Flavors: sweet and slightly umami
- Aromas: very rich with many notes developing right from the start, pronounced marine (fish flesh, a hint of shellfish), pronounced vegetal (cooked fruit and spinach to start, quickly developing raw vegetable notes), pronounced fruit (fresh fruit, pear, red fruit as well as nectarine), a hint of zest, floral notes (white flowers), butter (fresh butter)
- Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: the notes are rich and intense right from the start. They succeed one another without a break. The finish has a good presence with pronounced minty vegetal notes

Tips: Preparation

With the Kyusu: 2 minutes in water heated to 80°C, 3 times in a row.
