小山製茶 極

Once you have a sip, the natural taste of Japanese tea spreads in the mouth wondrously, and the aroma courses through the nose. The third-generation shop owner made the soil of the tea garden without being caught up to the typical manufacturing method in order to produce this taste. Since young trees that got just planted are immediately buried in weeds, they have to be managed by hands of people who frequently visit the field. The garden matures in about 5 years and finest tea leaves can be harvested. It is a cup of excellence reached by determining the climate of the production area and multiplying the knowledge of the research institution with our own experience for a long period of time. We would like you to taste that cup of tea.

The birthplace of domestic black tea “Yamaga Tea” In 1875, the government established the first Japanese black tea shop in the place of Yamaga.
Ever since then, the black tea was produced vigorously to such an extent that it was exported to the birthplace of tea, Europe. However, tea production gradually declined and ceased in the 1960s. At Yamaga City in the 21st century, we produced "Reprinted Tea" which faithfully reproduced the manufacturing method at that time.
