|STORY BEHIND THE TEA|
This Gyokuro was grown by one of the few farmers in southern Japan who produce this premium type of tea. The Atama, or head, grade leaf is the last thing that gets filtered out before the tea enters the competitions to make it look more uniform and beautiful. This Gyokuro still contains these parts. It might not be sorted to perfection but the Atama parts add a better harmony to the tea in our opinion.
