NARA TSUKIGASE 2022  Nurtured with spring water, this tea has a rounded, sweet, and fine flavor. This tea is carefully crafted deep in the mountains of Nara. Elegant first flush tea with a mild, very smooth mouthfeel and deep sweetness. This gem of a tea with the refreshing scent of the mountains is also recommended as a gift.  Only available in limited quantity.

This shincha is exclusively produced for LUPICIA by Mr. Inokura, a top-class master tea grower in Nara Prefecture who has won the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award many times. Produced in a special area of his tea plantation, which extends into the mountains at the highest elevation. The water used in his steaming process is the clear underground water that springs from the back of the teahouse on the mountaintop.
