Shirakawa Tea in two cans
Flavorful and elegant tea carefully produced by tea professionals
In the Muromachi era (around 1400s), a master priest of the Banryuji temple in what is now Higashi Shirakawa village brought tea plants from Uji City in Kyoto and suggested that villagers grow them. This is considered to be the beginning of Shirakawa Tea. “Shirakawa Tea” is cultivated under favorable conditions, including high altitudes of 650 meters, rich greens, clear water, and fresh air. Although the production amount is small, the high quality of Shirakawa Tea features a less bitter and mild taste. The plant species is called “Yabukita,” which has a unique and distinct scent and subtle sweetness. An engraved metallic plate is attached to the tea leaf cans. They are equipped with an inner cover to protect tea leaves from humidity. Two cans are placed in a paulownia box, which adds a further touch of elegance.
