Kiroku Tea Garden is run by the Hori family who has been tea farming for nearly a century. Based in Wazuka Village in southern Kyoto, an area famous for its beautiful landscape and delicious, high quality tea leaves.

After the passing of her father several years ago, Megumi Hori left her career as a graphic designer returning to help her mother continue the family farm.

Asanoka was registered in Kagoshima in 1996 and was made from a cross between the common Yabukita cultivar and a Chinese cultivar registered as hiramizu #1.
