Kirari 31 is a cultivar that is gaining interest for its high amino acid content, vibrant green colour, and its sweet aroma.

This tea comes from a young tea shrub that was planted five years ago. The sun-drenched leaves have an attractive colour, and produce a gorgeous bright green brew with a silky mouthfeel.

Our producer has chosen not to shade the leaves this year, allowing them to bask in the sun to produce a more refreshing aftertaste. They plan on shading the leaves for 2022, so this is the only year where you can enjoy this specific flavour!
