Tea Jar with 150g of Mino Shirakawa Tea in an Empress Tree Box
Flavorful and elegant green tea carefully produced by experienced tea growers
The origin of Shirakawa Tea is considered to date back to the Muromachi era (around 1400s), when a master priest of Banryuji temple in Higashi Shirakawa village brought tea plants back from Uji City in Kyoto and suggested the villagers to grow them.
“Mino Shirakawa Tea” is cultivated under favorable conditions, including high altitudes of 650 meters, rich greenery, clear water, and fresh air. Although the production amount is small, Shirakawa Tea’s little astringency and mild flavor attribute to high quality tea. The plant species is called “Yabukita,” which has a unique and distinct scent and subtle sweetness. This Mino Shirakawa Tea comes in a tea jar and packaged in an elegant empress tree box. The tea jar can be added to your room as an interior décor.
