We are honored to bring you the fruit of hard labor by our friends, the Hori family, a team of women who own and manage a 100-year-old tea plantation.
A high-quality roasted green tea made from Ten tea. While high-grade green teas usually do not get roasted, as Hoji teas are usually considered a ‘worker’s drink,’ Kirokuen has pushed the boundaries to make this one rich in flavor, yet sweet and sophisticated.
Along the slopes of the mountains in Wazuka lies rows of neatly trimmed terraces of tea bushes. With its fresh air and temperature variation during the day, it is the ideal climate for its production. Two hectares (five acres) of this region belong to Kirokuen, a tea plantation succeeded, owned, and managed by a mother and her two daughters.
