Rikio-San is our friend and supplier of one of our favorite teas of this year's Garden Direct season. Nestled in the Okawa region in Hon Yama, Rikio-San's organic tea gardens are found deep within the forests and clouds at some of the highest elevations in the area. With natural forest and mountainous buffer zones, it is the perfect location for producing elegant and aromatic sencha. Rikio-San's Shincha offers a balanced, brisk, and energetic green tea infusion with a classic mountain fragrance.
