In collaboration with our fellow peers in Wazuka Town, we are excited to present you with this very bundle: Wazuka Tea Farmers Gyokuro Special.

Our Young Farmers' project is part of d:matcha's long term vision to revitalise and rejuvenate tea farming in Wazuka Town, Kyoto Prefecture. By selecting only the youngest tea shoots, gyokuro is known for its strong umami taste. Furthermore, it is a requirement for the young shoots to be indirectly shaded with the use of a tana (shelf).

This collaboration thus allows us to showcase the versatility of Wazuka Town's tea and tradition.

You will receive the following: Gyokuro gokou, gyokuro asahi, and gyokuro tenmyo.

Please note:

  • Each variation weighs 40g (ten servings) and is packed in a resealable bag.
  • Each serving can be brewed up to three times using different water temperatures.
