Prefecture:Kagoshima Producer:Wakoen Ingredients:Green tea, yuzu Vegan, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Soy-free Size: 5 x 1 tea bag
Wakohen’s steamed green tea is made from the freshest tea leaves picked from their fields in Ōsumi, located in the eastern part of Kagoshima Prefecture. The leaves are carefully steamed to produce a tea with the highest quality color, richness and taste, which is then combined with yuzu to create a tea that balances vegetal green tea with tart, sweet citrus.
Wakohen’s story started about 70 years ago, when Hitoshi Horiguchi had the vision of growing tea on a small 1ha parcel of land. His son, Yasuhisa, helped to increase the number of tea gardens and factories which has helped his tea farm grow to 130ha while making Kagoshima the biggest tea production region of Japan.
Hitoshi’s grandson Daisuke is now continuing the story of the Horiguchi famil. In a few years the 4th generation will continue writing this tea story, of which you are now a part.
Suggested use:Place one tea bag in ~300ml (~2 tea cups) of boiled water and brew for 2-3mins.
