At the start of my tea journey, many years ago, both Lu Ann (The Cup of Life) and Tegan (Amoda Tea) were instrumental to my tea growth. So, when Lu Ann became the curator for the Amoda Tea monthly boxes, I was happy, proud, and curious to see what Lu Ann had come up with!
Last week, I wrote about shaded (Kabuse) green teas and I said that I would talk about unshaded (Roji) teas this week. However, I realized that it actually might be more useful to talk about harvesting seasons and why they are important, purely because most plants around the world are left unshaded in order to receive optimal sunlight.
Last week, I started TEA 101, and the goal of the series is to share what I am learning about tea with you! In the first post, I broke down different common green teas in Japan. Now, I want to go into more detail about each one. This week will be about shaded teas!
