The taste of tea in our cup is determined by the following factors:
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
When I was visiting Japan, I heard about Uejima-san teas from stories, thus I could not leave Wazuka town without tasting teas of one of the most respected town’s masters. Uejima-san is a fifth-generation farmer whose tea is valued and found in a few luxury hotels. Uejima-san is the only winner to score the maximum number of points in the Kyoto Tea Tasting Competition. It is a great honor to cooperate and have this master’s tea in the Yugen Tea collection.
