Ingredients: 100% aracha from Wazuka, Kyoto
Region: Kyoto
Season: Summer harvest
Growing Altitude: 500 m
Producer: Akihiro Kita
Cultivar: Yabukita, about 35 years old

A deep cropping increases volume to include slender pieces of twig. These twigs contain sugars that help to offset the potential bitterness of the more mature leaves.
