Collection: WAZUKA

The town of Wazuka, located in the Sōraku district of Kyoto Prefecture, is famous as the largest tea production area around Kyoto. About 45% of the tea produced in Kyoto Prefecture is grown in the Wazuka region. Tea cultivation there dates back to about 800 years ago. It is said that the tea trees in Wazuka, brought back from the Tang Dynasty by Eisai, were the first of their kind in Japan. Wazuka is a member of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages in Japan. The village spreads along the Wazuka River, and the mountain slopes covered in tea fields form a beautiful scenery. The steep mountains, big temperature differences and a lot of mist around the valley create an ideal environment for growing high-quality tea. Wazuka produces the largest amount of tencha, the raw material for matcha, in Japan. The number of young farmers who are involved in organic and natural cultivation, as well as the production of small quantities of a wide variety of unique teas, is increasing, and expectations are high for the region to take on these new challenges.
