Preparation method:

Various tea making techniques and strategies are available according to individual needs. Recommended preparation method of Yugen Tea:

Japanese brewing (3-4 brews):

The quality of tea leaves: the quality of tea leaves is determined not only by the master’s work, but also by the following storage conditions. To extend the expiration date, an unopened green tea package can be stored in a refrigerator. After opening the package, it is recommended to store the tea in a sun-proof package or airtight container in a cool place, as far away from moisture and smells as possible.

The quality of water: a cup of tea consists of 99% of water, therefore, its quality is no less important than a tea itself. The most suitable water for the tea is soft and as close as possible to neutral pH, with a low mineral content (50-100 mg/l). Usually, tap water in Lithuania is heavy, therefore, for best possible results, you should choose filtered or spring water. During boiling, water loses oxygen, thus it is recommended to never boil the same water more than once.

About the farmer

Matsumoto-san grew up on the tea farm near Fuji-san, the highest mountain in Japan. More than 15 years ago, Matsumoto-san took over his family farm. Back in the days, overwhelmed with responsibility and inner conflicts, these days farmer Matsumoto-san, together with his children and family, greatly enjoys his time in the tea fields. Matsumoto-san seeks to be an innovator in tea growing and production. He has achieved his aim – Matsumoto-san has been acknowledged as an international pioneer of Japanese smoked tea. Matsumoto-san family maintains a very old technique of growing the tea called „chagusaba“, which is known as an important UNESCO heritage on the agricultural sphere. „Chagusaba“ is a tea-plant growing technique in which a particular type of grass is being manually cut, dried, chopped, and spread along the sides of the tea field. This enriches the soil with natural elements and helps to preserve a biological diversity in the region.
