Yumefuki - Leaf to Cup-

Japanese black tea called "Yumefuki" made from Benifuki cultivar is produced by Ms Tanaka and her family and team in Kagoshima. 

This is 2019 first flush.


Clear color with a golden ring. 


A lovely cup of fresh green note and a hint of herb with a pleasant bitterness.


They also run their own tea shops both in Kagoshima and Osaka.



They grow, process, serve and sell their tea. I think that this "from leaf to cup" style must be very ideal for a small-scale tea producer.

Another cultivar "benihikari" is available too.

It started with Ms Tanaka's passion and power to tea. And now her daughter and grand daughters have been carrying on her love for tea.
