ABOUT THE GROWER
The Yamaguchi have 29 cultivars growing on their farm, located on the hills of Hoshino. The leaves for their award winning matcha and gyokuro are shaded for six weeks prior to picking, forcing the leaves to produce extreme amounts of chlorophyl which gives their tea the rich green colour. Though Yame is a younger tea producing region, the terroir, availability of tea cultivars, and attention to detail in the handcrafting process is yielding some of the best shade grown teas we’ve ever tried.
