This is a seasonal product that is made available during the New Year season only.
Premium Issaku with 22 karats true gold leaf.
Yes, the tea has a real 22 karat gold leaf in it!
This tea is (possibly?) the most luxurious Japanese green tea sencha you can get in the market.
This is a very special type of green tea that is only consumed at the New Year in Japan. It is called kinpaku-cha (金箔茶）
It is oftentimes offered as a gift for very special people at the New Year.
The tea we used is called Kuradashi, and it is the first crop Issaku (yes, the Global Tea Champion tea), which is being aged like fine wine.
One of the most luxurious green tea types, it is only available after aging through autumn.

Handpicked Only Once a Year on New Grown Crop
Using extreme care, the crop is harvested only once a year by trained farmers who pick only the newly grown tea leaf sprouts by hand.
Processing Traditional Japanese Methods Using Latest Technology
Carefully picked tea leaves are kept in a special refrigerator which sustains temperature and moisture level at the same level as traditional soil layer where the Japanese used to age tea leaves for centuries. Aging tea leaves with this approach brings the right amount of fullness and taste. After specific amount of aging, tea leaves are treated with the right amount of heat, carefully calibrated for the best taste. Tea processed using this approach is called, Kuradashi Cha (Kuradashi Tea) which translates to, "tea taken out from the granary".
Art of Aging Tea and Taste of Kuradashi Green Tea
Issaku is created by aging newly picked tea leaves for half a year under carefully calibrated equipment under -15 degree Celsius. Before it is aged, the tea is processed up until the Aracha state (crude tea); the tea itself is the same tea as Aracha (crude tea). The difference between Aracha (crude tea) and Kuradashi Tea is that Kuradashi has a more mellow taste with a heavier body, and has a little more astringency making the taste richer than freshly picked tea.
Issaku is the highest-grade tea available from Arahataen, and due to the complex and long process of creating the tea, only a limited quantity is available to produce every year. This tea is rare, even in Japan to enjoy.
