Korogi Fukumidori Oolong 2018

The Tea Crane

  • $1400

 "A truly delicious tea is born from the plant's inherent natural energy."

This is Yōichi Kōrogi, this tea's producer's fundamental philosophy with which he has continued to grow natural, organic tea bushes for over 30 years. It is therefore no surprise that he has won the price for best Kamairicha, presented by the ministry of agriculture in Japan, for the astonishing amount of 15 times during his time as a tea producer.

While he is a leading figure in the manufacturing of kamairicha, he also likes to experiment. This Oolong is a result of one of his attempts to produce an Oolong tea with a rather unusual Japanese tea cultivar.
