Deep-steamed Green Tea (Tearoom KIMIKURA) | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Kakegawa Station 

[Deep-steamed Green Tea (Tearoom KIMIKURA)]

The sweet and mellow taste, free from astringency, is an allure for everyone

This deep-steamed tea features a beautiful deep green color, which makes a fine contrast with the teacup it is poured into. Its sweet and mellow taste, free from astringency, is created by steaming slowly. The tea leaf steaming process is two or three times longer compared with common green tea. Kakegawa is the production area of this deep-steamed tea, and Kimikura, an old-established tea shop, sells tea produced by a tea master who won the grand gold prize at the crude tea refining technique competition. At the adjoining cafe, confectioneries are also offered along with the deep-steamed tea.
