Origin: Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan
One of the treasures of Japan. Our tip tea from Fukuoka prefecture is protected from the sun by straw shades, and harvested just two weeks each year. Its taste is sweetly complex, with a nuance of baked pear evolving to a buttery aftertaste. Like a fine wine, Yame Gyokuro is meant to be savored on its own.
