During the Edo era (1603-1867), the predominant Satsuma clan encouraged tea cultivation among the farmers of Kagoshima Prefecture.
Although the region was known until the early 1950s for its mass production of cheap tea the introduction of the Yabukita cultivar and profound improvements in the handling of tea on the farms have positioned this appellation of origin as a supplier of high-quality teas.
Mr. and Mrs. Yamaguchi grow tea in their 10-hectare organic garden located south of Kagoshima.
They do everything from composting the soil, tending the tea plants, harvesting, and manufacturing the tea.
For several years they specialized in the preparation of Sencha and later in Gyokuro. In 2016 they manufactured for the first time Gyokuro made from the Kanaya cultivar with small leaves, delicate and very rich in theanine, which gives the drink its great sweetness and relaxing properties.
A limited edition of a rare and extraordinary Gyokuro.
