KI NO TEA is a product created in collaboration with tea-grower and blender Hori-Shichimeien, founded in the Meiji era in 1879 and based in the famous Uji region to the south of Kyoto city. A number of super-premium Uji teas have been specially selected to form the heard of KI NO TEA.
Tencha and gyokuro provide intense aromas and depth of flavor with a wonderful sweetness that occurs naturally in the distillation of these superior teas. Kyoto Distillery uses leaves harvested in the Okunoyama tea yard, dating back to the 14th century, and blends them carefully with a secret botanical recipe used only in KI NO TEA.
