shutaro hayashi kirishima tennen gyokuro oku yutaka
Oku Yutaka organic Gyokuro green tea, grown by the Shutaro Hayashi family
Shutaro HAYASHI belongs to the fifth generation of a family of tea growers in the prefecture of Kagoshima, in the south of the Kyûshû peninsula. At the foot of the Kirishima mountains, 霧島 the Hayashi family cultivates in their family gardens surrounded by forests, species of tea trees, some of which are becoming increasingly rare in Japan. All of its production stems from a fully organic culture that knows how to meet the challenges arising from the demanding working method of an organic tea garden.
The Oku Yutaka tea bushes used for this tea are also called Tennen Gyokuro: their uniqueness comes from their leaves that naturally develop a round and pronounced umami even though the tea plants are shaded for a relatively short period of time, only between 10 and 15 days. Only the finest leaves are carefully selected for their exceptional flavour.
Enjoy this deep, characterful Kirishima Tennen Gyokuro Oku Yutaka Organic tea with a unique umami taste that is hard to match by other teas in this category.
