What is the difference between master Osada-san’s and farmer Akky-san’s genmaicha teas?

Farmer Akky-san’s genmaicha is balanced in such a way that both green tea and rice flavor notes are felt in the composition. Master Osada-san’s genmaicha has a slightly more intense rice flavor than farmer Akky-san’s tea.

Akky-san’s genmaicha is “aracha”, i.e. it does not undergo the secondary processes of sorting, unifying the leaves and mixing different teas. Akky-san believes that an aracha is like a family where different members live: babies are small pieces of leaves, adults are healthy beautiful leaves, and old people are strong stalks. As in a family all members live in harmony, so in a cup of tea. Master Osada-san’s genmaicha tea has leaves of a similar size and is additionally decorated with exploded mochi rice.

Preparation guide

The taste of tea in our cup is determined by the following factors:

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):

Western brewing (1-2 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

The Osada family is one of the leaders in the Japanese organic tea industry. The Osada family not only nurtures their tea fields, but has also brought together more than 30 organic tea farms in Shizuoka Prefecture in the last 30 years.

The Osada family buys a farmer’s so-called aracha tea from their fields and small family farms. Tea from different farms is produced separately, allowing for a unique taste and the highest quality to remain. When asked what led him to the establishment of the organic farm, the master Osada-san replied that it was the desire of his family and other farmers of the area to drink the best natural teas, eat natural vegetables and taste the best fresh mountain river water. As the master says, nurturing an organic farm makes a person more caring for the tea plant and helps him to understand it. The whole journey of learning has allowed him to experiment and create the best flavors possible.
