Sourced from tea farms in the regions surrounding Uji, Kyoto, Nishide-san refines and blends handpicked gyokuro tea leaves into this Modern Heritage Uji Gyokuro. The shading also uses a canopy instead of direct covering preventing damage to the leaves, and allowing them to grow freely.
Ingredients: Green tea
Cultivation & Processing Notes: Shaded for 3 weeks, steamed lightly, rolled, dried, blended with handpicked Gyokuro.
Address: 59 Higashiokutani Zenjyoji, Ujitawara-cho, Tsuzuki-gun, Kyoto 610-0201, Japan
The Nishide Tea Factory is managed by husband and wife team, Takashi and Atsuko Nishide and their family. Established over 140 years ago, the Nishide family buys aracha tea (unrefined leaves) from the tea farms of Kyoto and surrounding prefectures, and refines them further to craft high quality tea leaves that are uniform in color and shape, and of course excellent in flavor.
