TEMOMI GYOKURO - CULTURAL HERITAGE

$22.00

  •  

    This gem is a cultural treasure. 

    After knowing Yoshida San for 5 years and enjoying some outstanding tea from this most generous family, we learned (through a mutual friend) that his uncle was certified as 'Cultural Heritage of Uji'.  Yoshida Kisaburo was the 14th generation of tea artisans in the family; he was recognized because of his 'temomi' (tea handcrafting) technique.  We also learned that Yoshida San's temomi tea was presented to the Emperor on the first year of Reiwa.

    We have a VERY limited amount of this tea.  Using hand-picked young leaves (1 bud & 2 leaves) and kneaded for hours on charcoal heated, traditional gyokuro table, Yoshida San crafts batches of no more than 700g of this tea.  

    Suggestion:  after brewing your tea, EAT the leaves.  You'll be happy you did.

    About The Grower

    Yoshida San is one of the most meticulous tea artists that we’ve met; the family has been making tea over roughly 300 years, and this is reflected obsessive attention to detail.  In recent years, Yoshida San has launched some single cultivar and two cultivar blends that we are very impressed with.
