Japan, Shizuoka Okabe
Our Gyokuro Prestige is grown and harvested in Okabe Town, Shizuoka Prefecture. A pristine region known for its stunning views, fresh-water rivers, and crystal-clear views of Mt Fuji. The terroir is perfect for tea cultivation. Volcanic soils, sunshine, extreme temperature variations, abundant fresh water and mists contribute to the beautiful quality teas grown in the region. Gyokuro is the finest of these, it’s actually considered the highest grade of green tea to come out of Japan. The tea is grown in the shade for 20 days before being harvested carefully by hand. The leaves are steamed, dried and rolled into a distinctive shape immediately after the pick.
