About Onocha®

Onocha® is the name given to tea from the Ono region of Yamaguchi Prefecture, now part of the municipality of Ube City. Tea production in this area was pioneered by the Yamaguchi Chagyo's first president. The area is known for its sandy red soil, rich in nutrients, that produces a tea with strong balance between bitterness, astringency, and sweetness.

History of Onocha

During the Meiji period (1868-1912), the region produced some 7.5 million kilograms of tea per year (about 50 times current production. Tea production virtually disappeared until the late 1960s when the current Yamaguchi Chagyo's president's father revived commercial production in the area.
