Organically produced wakocha (Japanese black tea) from a small family-run farm, Koukien Tea Garden. This single cultivar Yutaka Midori cultivar was grown at the foot of the mountains in Kirishima, Kagoshima Prefecture. Sisters Yurie and Akane Kawaguchi are continuously working hard to make their wakochas more delicious and enjoyable. Their Yutaka Midori wakocha is a standard one, with a gentle aroma and pleasant flavor. Makes for a good afternoon tea. 

About the cultivar: Yutaka Midori (ゆたかみどり) means abundant green in Japanese. It is a cultivar that is mostly found in Kagoshima prefecture (30% cultivated area) as it is a cultivar that is suitable for warm weather. This cultivar ranks second after the Yabukita cultivar with respect to cultivation area and popularity in Japan.
