Availability for Purchase:


Organically produced wakocha (Japanese black tea) from a small family-run farm, Koukien Tea Garden. This single cultivar tea was grown at the foot of the mountains in Kirishima, Kagoshima Prefecture. Sisters Yurie and Akane Kawaguchi are continuously working hard to make their wakochas more delicious and enjoyable.  

About the cultivar: The kanaya midori cultivar was created in 1949 in the town of Kanaya, Shizuoka, (now part of Shimada City) by crossing Yabukita and a plant grown from seed known as Shizuoka Zairai #16 (S6). It was registered as a cultivar in 1970, but remains a fairly rare cultivar. As a black tea, it produces a slightly more creamy flavor profile than other cultivars.
