Tencha farmers from Wazuka Village, Kyoto—sisters Ui and Megumi Hori, and their mother— bring you a small batch (only few dozen kg harvested) matcha made from the cultivar Gokou, a region-specific cultivar known for its rich creaminess. 

About the Gokou Cultivar:  An unregistered cultivar from Kyoto prefecture, this is a cultivar that is well-suited for shading, that is why it is often made into gyokuro or matcha. Gokou is known for its' earthy aroma and its creamy flavor.

    About Kiroku Tea Garden

    The 4th generation Kiroku Tea Garden is in the heart of Wazuka, Kyoto prefecture, an area whose mountain tea fields and undulating terraced slopes thick with fog make perfect tea-growing conditions. Founded nearly 100 years ago, before cars and farming machinery were available, their mountain fields were cleared by hand by the Great-Grandfather of sisters Megumi and Ui Hori.

    Today, with their mother, the sisters find themselves in the unusual position of being a farm entirely owned and operated by women. After the passing of their father, the three women took over the running of the farm to continue their family’s legacy, one that began in these fields all those years ago. In the male-dominated tea agriculture and production industry, their efforts are a challenge to the status quo. At Yunomi, we are proud to support their dedication.
