It's been part of the Kyoto tea scene since 1860, when the streets of Japan's old capital were lined with samurai, but nothing has changed in the quality Gion Tsujiri brings to Japanese tea-drinkers over all these years. With the Gion Tsujiri Uji Teas Set, you can see for yourself why the store has become a synonym for high-quality tea. Offering a selection of the most popular varieties, the set comes in a beautiful box with four individual packs.
What you get in the Gion Tsujiri Uji Teas Set is a 96 g (3.3 oz) pack of top-quality Hekiun Gyokuro, a 96 g (3.3 oz) pack of Senko Sencha (the standard green tea, although after a sip you will immediately understand that there's nothing "standard" about it), a 96 g (3.3 oz) of Karigane Genmaicha (green tea mixed with roasted and popped brown rice), and a 40 g (1.4 oz) of Kotokaori Hojicha, the roasted tea that is so different it'll make you forget it's actually green. Get them and become an instant master of loose-leaf tea from Kyoto's Uji area!
