Elegant taste and aroma born in tea country

Uji Tea is called one of Japan's three great teas, alongside Shizuoka Tea and Sayama Tea. The place where Uji Tea is produced has a long history of tea production and is referred to as "Japan's Tea Country" because the production techniques for green tea (sencha), refined green tea (gyokuro), and matcha have spread nationwide from here. Green tea fields spread out along the slopes of the region and make for a beautiful landscape. The sweetness and astringency of Uji Tea provide just the right refreshing taste. Sweets and dishes using Uji matcha green tea are growing in popularity as well.
