Ugano Shiro is a unique lot of matcha tea dedicated to the temple that symbolizes the beginning of Japan's "God's Foot". This is one of the author's varieties and the pride of our farmer - Mr. Yut Oka.

The tea is harvested exclusively by hand from the first shoots of spring tea from the Yabukit cultivation leaf, which is famous for its high mineral content and persistent taste. Tea has a high caffeine content, a pleasant bitterness and a noble taste. The texture of matcha will resemble the foam of nitro drinks.

Yabukita is the cultivation of matcha, which has its own advantages that many tea cultivations try to match. It is Yabukita that is highly resistant to frost, heavy rainfall, and even earthquakes and pests. Due to its resistance, tea is often crossed with Yabukit to get a slightly better yield.

The main difference in taste is minerality, aged bitterness and dense fruity sweetness, which is created due to the opportunity to grow tea in rocky terrain.

History of cultivation

Yabukita is one of the most common varieties of tea in Japan, which became one of the first varieties that was bred in the highlands of Shizuoka. This variety was invented in 1953, by combining the genetic material of different varieties of tea, in particular, the black Keemun variety and Chinese green tea.

Due to its high quality and productivity, Yabukita has become one of the most popular varieties of tea in Japan. This type of tea has small leaves, green in color with a mild but rich taste and pleasant aroma. Tea from this variety is considered ideal for making traditional Japanese tea.

Yabukita is grown in Shizuoka province and other regions of Japan at an altitude of about 100-500 meters above sea level. It is grown on plantations where special techniques are used, such as humidity control and the use of shade nets to protect from direct sunlight. These techniques allow you to get tea with a richer taste and aroma.

The advantages of Yabukit are its high yield, ability to grow well in different climatic conditions, as well as excellent taste and aroma. This type of tea is popular not only in Japan, but also in many other countries, where it is considered a refined and elegant drink with a light, fresh taste and a pleasant aroma.
