Organic Green Tea From Kyoto
Kyoto Prefecture is known as one of Japan's leading tea–growing areas, and the prefecture's mountains contain many tea plantations. Conditions such as a large temperature difference between day and nighttime, and the fogs that rise from the Uji and Kizu rivers, give Kyoto an ideal environment for tea cultivation. This organic green tea is produced in a Kyoto Prefecture organic farm by refining aracha – a kind of rough tea made by steaming and kneading fresh leaves before drying them. Organic tea cultivation uses no chemical fertilizers or pesticides, so you can enjoy the pure Kyoto mountain fragrance and natural flavors of this tea. As tea has relaxing properties, we recommend that you drink it when you want to unwind. When brewed in hot water, the effect of the caffeine will refresh your mood. This tea complements various foods, especially Japanese food like sushi, but also meat dishes. Tea also contains the substance tannin, which has anti- bacterial properties, and when enjoying a meal, washes away any remaining oils and fats in the mouth, refreshing the palate.
