Yamacha Hamamatsu

Categories: , ,

The mountain version of Sencha tea from the Hamamatsu region in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan has dark green flat leaves of uniform size, a fresh grassy scent and delicate flavour. This tea has very beneficial effects on body and mind. It stimulates, purifies the organism, and has a high Vitamin C content. The tea yields a vigorous brew even after several steepings. Translated, it means “infusion tea”. The stone terraced gardens were discovered during the visit of Dobra Tea members in 2009, and the Yamacha tea has since become a regular in the Dobra Tea Room offer.
