This Yabukita switched to plant-based fertilizers this year. It offers a taste of deep serenity. It grows in a rich forest ecosystem and has a sweetness like fava beans and a flavor like enoki mushrooms. We recommend cold brew during the new tea season. As the tea matures over the summer, the flavor becomes milder and better suited to brewing warm. .

Brewing Guidelines

This is how we brew this tea at Tearoom Toka. We offer these guidelines as a reference. Variations in water (hard or soft), leaf and water quantity, water temperature, and steeping time will effect the final flavor. Feel free to experiment and find the brew that best suits your taste.


Leaves: 8g
Water: 60ml
Temperature: starting from 45°C
Time: 35 sec


Add the tea leaves to a pre-warmed teapot. When the boiled water has cooled to the desired temperature, add and steep for the selected time. When pouring, the key is to decant each infusion down to the last drop. From the second infusion on, gradually raise the temperature of the hot water and shorten the extraction time. You may increase the amount of water as well.
