Description

From the village of Wazuka, tea farmer Uejima-san presents a hojicha roasted green tea made from a tea field in the mountains surrounding the village. This tea field has not seen the use of pesticides in 15 years, and Uejima-san roasts the leaf using a small-scale tea leaf roaster (Morita-style from the Morita Metalworks Factory) that uses a spinning metal barrel to ensure even roasting.

About Tea Farmer: Noriyasu Uejima

Noriyasu Uejima is a tea master. In the 90+ year old tea tasting competition held in Kyoto, he is the only winner to ever achieve a perfect score. Cultivating and processing some of Kyoto's finest teas, the Ritz Carlton Hotel of Kyoto features his teas in their line up for guests. He is the 5th generation master farmer carrying on a tradition that dates back to the mid-19th century when his ancestor started the Uejima family as a branch family of an even older main family. The farm also operates the Wazuka Village's Wazuka Cha Cafe.
