Luxury & High Quality "Yame Tea"

The reason why “Yame tea” is delicious

With an average annual temperature of 15.2°C and an annual rainfall of 2,019 mm, the temperature difference between morning and evening caused by the location conditions results in "morning fog", which is empirically considered to be a suitable place for high-quality tea production. In addition, the larger the temperature difference, the more the plant's respiration is suppressed at night, and more nutrients such as amino acids, which are the components of umami, are stored.
