Nature’s first green is gold Her hardest hue to holdHer early leaf’s a flower But only so an hour Then leaf subsides to leaf So Eden sank to grief So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay
Intimate celebration with those you love the most. This ritual should include just you soemtimes.
Help each other. Love everyone. Every leaf. Every ray of light. Forgive.

SAEMIDORI :Saemidori cultivar of Camellia Sinensis.Saemidori, meaning “clear green”, is a cultivar that produces a bright green liquor. A modern love child of the Asatsuyu and Yabukita breeds. Registered in 1990 as number 40 breed. Saemidori, being an early-budding cultivar, can be harvested 4 to 7 days earlier than Yabukita. It’s a delicate little leaf and demands plenty of love to help it survive the challenges of wild nature. The fact this is a certified organic tea of this precious variety is a reflection of the skill and passion of the farmers and blender that brought this tea to you.
GOKOU : Gokou is popular for its fruity aroma, creamy texture, strong umami, and refreshing astringency. The shading process in preparation for matcha production works well to enhance its dark green color and strong aroma. Gokou is native to Uji, Kyoto.
TERRIOR NOTES: Along the borders of Kyoto, where the river Uji descends from the mountains, the KYOO PREFECTURE is perfectly situated for tea production. Foggy, misty mornings protect the leaves from frost, the enemy of the tea plant. In this ideal climate, the soil is well-drained and aerated. Hence, a real intense flavour, rounded sweetness and pleasant aroma are brought out in the tea. KYOTO is the Champagne region for Matcha WITH IT'S rich and acidic RED CLAY SOIL which is perfectly suited for the cultivation of premium green tea.
