Hattori Tea Farm


Heritage grade gyokuro from Kyoto tea farmer Akinobu Hattori, who has been farming gyokuro for 5 decades. Hattori-san uses a modern heritage style of canopy shading, foregoing the traditional labor-intensive straw material for the easier plastic shading (in his 70s, you can't blame him!).

  • Harvest: Spring
  • Cultivation notes: Canopy with plastic shading, approximately 3 weeks. Minimal pesticide use. Handpicked.
  • Processing notes: Regular steaming (about 40 seconds). Aged by Yunomi.
  • Region: Uji, Kyoto, Japan
  • Tea farm: The family has a 400-year history as tea farmers. Company established in 1982.
