Tea Types



Shizuoka, Kagoshima, and Kyoto are the well-known production areas for Japanese tea, but in reality, tea is grown in 37 of Japan's 47 prefectures, and variations can be enjoyed depending on factors such as climate, topography, and the producer's expertise.


There are not only popular traditional tea types such as sencha and hojicha, but also rare types such as kamairi-cha, tamaryoku-cha and some new types that have been produced in recent years, such as withering sencha and lightly roasted hojicha, which have a new taste with a slightly different production process from the traditional method.


Currently, there are over 120 cultivars of Japanese tea! There are cultivars with a strong umami flavor, cultivars with a strong earthy profile, cultivars with a flowery aroma, and many other characteristics!
