Description

The region around Uji, Kyoto, is famous for its outstanding tea quality. Nishide-san refines and blends only handpicked Gyokuro tea leaves from his tea fields into this delicious modern heritage Gyokuro. To protect the tea leaves from damages due to direct covering, Nishide-San uses canopy to allow the leaves to grow freely.
