Using extreme care, the crop is harvested only once a year by hand by trained farmers who picks only the newly grown tea leaf sprouts.
Carefully picked tea leafs are being kept in special refrigerator which sustains temperature and moisture level at the same level as traditional soil layer where Japanese used to age the tea leaf for centuries. Aging the tea leaf with this approach brings the right amount of fullness and taste. After specific amount of aging, tea leafs are being treated with right amount of heat carefully calibrated for the best taste. Tea processed this approach is called Kuradashi Cha (Kuradashi Tea) which translates to "tea taken out from the granary". You can read more about Kuradashi Tea here.
Issaku is created by aging newly picked tea leaves for half an year long under carefully calibrated equipment under -15 degree celsius. Before it is aged, the tea is processed up until Aracha state (crude tea). The tea itself is the same tea as Aracha (crude tea). Difference between Aracha (crude tea) and Kuradashi Tea is that Kuradashi has more mellow taste with heavier body and has little more astringency making the taste richer than freshly picked tea.
Issaku is the highest grade tea available from Arahataen, and due to the complex and long process of creating the tea, only limited quantity is available to produce every year. This tea is rare tea even in Japan to enjoy.
