(10 products)

Introduction 

The award-winning Kuma family (Yame Tea Kumaen) has been farming tea in the mountains of the famous Yame region in Fukuoka for three generations.

The Family

Japanese tea instructor Kazumi Nakatani manages Kuma Tea Gardens as a brand representing her tea farmer uncles and cousins, and uses her expert palette to design exquisite sencha and gyokuro teas from the leaves farmed by her extended family.

Cousin Masahiro Kuma is quickly becoming a legend in Japan, having won the top prize (Minister's Award) for the gyokuro tea category at the 2017 National Tea Competition.
