ABOUT THE ESTATE
Fujioka is a master of single cultivar production, allowing Jagasilk to explore camellia sinensis via the variety. He places a major emphasis on healthy soil and pure processes which is directly reflected in the tea he produces. Fujioka chose to give his Okuda lot a rest this year for the second harvest and produced this beautiful alternative from his Fukada lot instead.
Jagasilk freshly mills this beautiful tea in micro batches for optimum freshness in Victoria, BC. Taking extra care to source direct from the farmers to have open dialogue about each tea and spice that they use. As they say "Fresh means nutritional integrity, memorable flavour, and happiness."
