NUMEROLOGY

Our Gyokuro tea might be almost neon green, but the colour is entirely natural. Tokyo first started using its famous neon signs in 1926, so we’ve given this tea the number 26.

JAPAN

Tea was first introduced to Japan around the turn of the first millennium, and since then it's become much more than just a drink: chado or "the way of tea" is a fine art for the Japanese that takes a lifetime to master. Today Japan is famous for its lush, verdant green tea, thanks to a process of steaming the leaves.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
