Slender needle-like leaves produce a deeply vegetal taste and aroma, ripe with notes of toasted rice and nori. Harvested in the spring to early summer from the verdant fields of the up-and-coming Kagoshima region, the leaves are steamed to perfection to stop oxidation of the leaf, as well as to lock in their deep jade color and flavor.
