From Orita-En

[Orita-En] – Teas by Nobuo Orita, the Tea Maestro. Kagoshima is known for its tea, and Nijiya is proud to introduce “Orita-En,” the Orita Tea Farm. Unlike many other tea companies in Japan that source their leaves from other farmers, Mr. Orita produces all of his tea leaves at his own farms. He will then process the leaves at his own facility and packs them there, overseeing the whole production process. That’s why we call him a maestro, a true tea master. Flavor characteristics; All of his teas have unmistakably rich and strong flavors. Yes, No Middleman. The orders from Nijiya are packed especially in a separate lot to guarantee the freshness and the quality every time. As soon as the lot is ready, it is assembled into a container and shipped directly from Shibushi, Kagoshima.

FUKAMUSHI SENCHA (Deep Steamed Green Tea) Fuka-mushi-sencha has a richer flavor and deeper green color due to the longer steam process. The flavor is soft and often with a strong hint of sweetness. The wait time is shorter than regular green tea, so you can enjoy it without the hassle.

This is our favorite blend tea with a very strong and rich flavor. It has the best balance of color, flavor, and aroma from the Orita Farm.特上深蒸し煎茶新緑時に味の濃い「さえみどり」「やぶきた」の品種をブレンドしました。味、色、香りのバランスが自慢の折田園一押し商品です。

Label: Green Tea From Chiran, Kagoshima (Orita-En Tokujo Fukamushi Sencha) Distributed by Nijiya Market

A high quality, very refined tea with many overtones. When I drink this tea I feel I am in communion with Mr Orita on his organic tea farm in Kagoshima looking out toward Satsuma Fuji mountain. The tea leaves are finely broken up, have a nice rich dark green color and grassy aroma. For me this tea is for special occasions (+-20 US dollars for 3.5 oz) so I save it for times when I can to stop and enjoy its special qualities.

1st Infusion: First pour is delicious with an exceptional vegetal aroma, green grassy flavor and roasted notes in the background. The flavor of leaves linger at the back of upper palate. Produces a rich deep green color tea and aroma.

2nd Infusion: 4 oz water at 180 for 1 1/2 minutes. Results spectacular; deep rich full green flavor palate with smokey green color tea. Sweat grassy aroma.

2nd Infusion (alt): Second pour is dependent on the 1st and how much water was used. In the past I’ve used 10 ounces of water at 170 for 1 1/2 minutes followed by 10 ounces at 180 for 2 minutes and the the 2nd brew results were not as spectacular. The flavor is reduced by 60% but the color was still deep green. I need to sit with this tea longer to more fully review the 2nd 3rd,4th infusions.
