Kiroku Tea Garden is known for their beautiful, high-quality matcha and we are so excited to introduce their matcha to you. Using the cultivar, Gokou, which is known to produce a rich and creamy matcha, the Hori family stone-mills only a small batch each year. The Gokou cultivar grows well in the shade which is why this cultivar is often used for matcha production. This hyper-premium, single-origin matcha is a ceremonial-grade matcha which means that it fits the high standards to be used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies and is exceptional to drink on its own. Truly a special offering from the Hori family that we hope you will try!

Feature Flora: Gokou Ceremonial Matcha
Founded by Deana Nguyen, Feature Flora is a botanical design studio and an online shop located in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Kiroku Tea Garden is a 4th generation women-owned tea farm in Wazuka, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. A total of 26 tea fields are lovingly tended by Megumi Hori, her sister Hiroe, and their mother Yoko. After Megumi’s father passed away several years ago, Megumi returned to Wazuka to help her mother continue the near-century-long family legacy.
The Hori family processes their own tea and matcha in-house and are passionate about revitalizing the tea industry in Japan. By experimenting with rare cultivars and creating unique single-origin teas, they hope to reignite people’s appreciation of the beauty and complexity of high-quality Japanese tea.
