Kurogi Hand-Picked Gyokuro
Origin: Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan
This artisanal selection pays homage to the time-honored tradition of gyokuro farming that sadly, in recent years, has been on the decline. Super-premium tea begins with the keen eye and delicate touch of those who handpick only the finest leaves. Grown high in the mountains of Yame, and harvested during the first week of May, this unique blend of Gokoh and Okumidori varietals has both lush aroma and characteristically sweet taste. Masterful finishing enhances the sumptuous “umami” flavor that echoes notes of sea salt and cacao. Enjoy this delectable tea and help preserve a Japanese tradition of tea as art.
