Deep in the woods of Kirishima, a highlands where the temperature differences between day and night are severe, stands a plantation of lush green tea leaves. Five generations of master tea harvesters have tended and overseen its fields, harvesting pure organic green tea in the spring months of every year since the Meiji era. From the steaming of the leaves to the handmade tea bags sewn by the Hayashi family, every step of the process is an artful tradition handed down through the generations. This collection of classic teas, brought straight from the Hayashi house to yours, introduces the varied and historic world of Japanese green tea.
