From the land of ancient temples

ZENJIRO is derived from Ozenji Temple in Kanagawa. Zen that enshrines the heavens and mountains and concentrates the work of the mind. Ozenji Temple was built in the Nara period and was a chokugan-ji temple for the protection of the eastern country as Koyasan in the Kanto region where Shingon esoteric Buddhism is practiced. The era when tea was brought to Japan by Kukai and others. Ieyasu Tokugawa took the ancient temple of Ozenji as a tenryo and later protected it under the Jodo sect of Zojoji.

The Japanese tea brand Zen Jiro was named with the hope of spreading the thoughts of the ancient people who have grown tea from this ancient temple into their products and spreading it around the world. Only the selected tea leaves bear the brand name.

Blessing of drizzling

The land of scenic beauty near the Kiso Mountains. Minoshirakawa. The river fog from a tributary of the Hida River covers the steep tea plantations. The history of tea cultivation has been 600 years since the Muromachi period. The fog blocks the sunlight, creates a rich umami flavor, and the high altitude, which is twice that of other production areas, slowly stores the umami flavor in the tea leaves. The soft and glossy sprout is exactly the blessing of drizzling. The finest tea leaves, also known as natural Gyokuro. Please enjoy the drops of supreme tea leaves of the past ten Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Awards and the Emperor's Cup.
