Introduction

The Shimizu family operates an award winning tea farm based in the village of Suizawa in Yokkaichi City, Mie, famous for its bankoyaki tea ware. Their tea fields span 10 hectare with a total production of about 600 kilograms, a very small amount compared to many other operations, but they and the 9 other commercial farms in the village specialize in producing a shaded tea called Kabusecha. A subset of Mie Prefecture's Isecha (ee-SEH-cha), tea from Suizawa Village, takes the best flavors from sencha tea and the richness of gyokuro to form a delicious fusion.
