The cultivation of tea in Uji is said to have its origins at the beginning of the 13th century, during the Kamakura Period. Blessed with good soil quality and topography, among other favorable conditions, tea cultivation in Uji rapidly expanded.
The custom of tea drinking began to spread during the mid-1400s. Uji tea was considered a first-class gift, and the tea-guessing game "Tocha" was created.
Eventually, tea drinking and cuisine were combined. "Cha no Yu," tea ceremony prizing tea ceremony tools and sitting room ornamentation, was developed and was spread through Japan by merchants and others. In the 15th century, Uji became as big a tea producer as the famed Toganoo in Kyoto. The tea plantation "Oku no Yama," one of Uji’s "Seven Famous Gardens", was founded during the Muromachi Period, and is still present in Uji today.

Almost all of the tea manufactured in Japan is green tea. The leaves can be turned into various styles of tea depending on how they are grown, when they are picked, and how they are processed, etc. We are proud to serve various Kyoto Uji brand, both organic and non-organic Japanese green tea. If you are looking for other types of Japanese green tea than Matcha, please feel free to contact us.
Sencha is the most popular tea among Japanese people. Tea leaves are steamed or pan-fried to preserve the flavor and freshness. Sencha is the most relished variety among all the green tea available on the market.
Gyokuro Gyokuro is known for its rich umami taste and its distinct aroma. To make Gyokuro tea, leaves are grown in the shade under reed or straw screens for approximately 20 days after the tea bush develops two to three sprouts. Since theanine will not break down if it is not exposed to light, Gyokuro is low in catechins, thereby achieving a less bitter, more delicious flavor. Its distinct aroma is referred to as a "rice-straw smell", which is similar to nori seaweed.
Matcha Matcha is made from tea leaves grown in the shade for 20 days under reed or straw screens. Instead of being steamed and hand-rolled, the leaves are left to dry, and then ground into a fine powder using stone mills. It is famous as the main tea used in the tea ceremony, and is also an ingredient for sweets and cooking.
Genmaicha Genmaicha is made from steamed and later roasted brown rice, where another kind of tea such as Bancha or Sencha is added to the mix in equal amounts. It allows you to enjoy the toasty flavor of brown rice and the refreshing taste of Bancha or Sencha. Because it’s rather low in caffeine, it can be enjoyed both by children and adults alike.
Hojicha Hojicha is made by roasting Sencha, Bancha, or Kukicha over a high flame until the color of the leaves turns light brown. This creates a rich, savory aroma. Roasting the leaves evaporates the caffeine, which gives the tea a delicious scent and its refreshing, light taste.
