Very rare organic Guricha in Japan. Please enjoy the mellow taste unique to Guri tea.
Mr. Masayoshi Houmatsu and his father are pioneers of organic Guricha and have been working hard to perfect their crop. Initially, it was thought that it would be difficult to produce delicious Guricha using organic methods, but through strong family ties, Houmatsu-san pursued his passion to produce an environmentally safe and beautiful tea. And that passion is poured into this Guricha, resulting in a truly delicious tea, which is produced in small quantities. We thank Houmatsu-san and his father for their efforts and in giving us the opportunity to handle this precious organic green tea.
