Add to my notebook

This green, shade grown tea, its unusual use of the cultivar (Saemidori) and its final drying (hiire), reflects a modern aesthetic, giving a fruity fragrance to the dry leaves.

The hammered finish on this piece is one of Mr. Murata most recognizable artistic signature.

Gyokuro Shuin

This multi award-winning Gyokuro is very representative of shade teas from the Uji region. Three weeks before the manual harvest, the tea bushes are covered and up to 85% of the sun's rays are filtered out to help create what the Japanese refer to as the "taste of the shade".
