Note: Packages for most tea & food products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions, click here to see info and photos). If you need the original Japanese package, please leave a note in the order comments.

Shizuoka is not known for their gyokuro making it quite difficult to find as most gyokuro from this region ends up being sold locally. Taste the deep umami!
