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.

Utilizes a rare cultivar called Inzatsu #131, born from the Indian Assam Manipuri #5 cultivar and an unknown father. The resulting cultivar is rich in floral aroma, hence the name "Ranryu" which translates to "Orchid Dragon".
