Description

First harvest (shincha 2023)

*Now available in 1 x 500g bulk package

This premium organic shiraore by tea master Irie san in Kuroki (Yame) is a delicacy for all senses.

Made with leaves, stems and twigs from leaves used for gyokuro, it is filled with umami that greets you as soon as you open the bag. Its white-gold stems stand out in beautiful contrast against the deep green color of the leaves.

As theanine is found double the amount in the stems and twigs as compared to in tea leaves, JIN is a great source of this precious amino acid that contributes to lowering blood pressure, relaxation, and protection of neuronal cells. Its low caffeine levels contribute to making JIN an excellent choice for people with poor caffeine tolerance.

Quickly and easily brewed in just 30 seconds with 90C water, JIN's beautiful liquor has no bitterness, and its sweetness and umami come with a satisfying lingering astringency. Nourishing, this is the perfect tea for your mid-morning break to hang on until lunch.

Producer Information

IRIE TOSHIRO

Irie Toshiro became convinced of the health benefits of green tea when, at 20, he suffered from gallstones and recovered quickly thanks to taking up to drinking green tea from his hometown, Yame.

For 35 years now, Irie san has invested his time and energy to grow 100% chemical- and pesticide-free green tea. As such, he was one of the first tea producers in Japan to embrace organic tea production. Along with his son, he shows the utmost care for his fields and the environment, and is a fervent defender of sustainable agriculture and tea production.
