This ichibancha is the work of Mr. Shoji, a remarkable grower who produces the tea using the Yabukita cultivar. The shaping of the leaves is outstanding; they are delicately rolled into needles of a very similar size.
A sophisticated spring tea which reveals complex vegetal, vanilla and marine notes, alongside a pleasantly smooth texture.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
