Different varieties of tea have different aromas and flavors. Exquisite combinations of various traits make unique, one-of-a-kind tea products and “tea masters” play a crucial role in this. These connoisseurs have extensive and in-depth knowledge of tea varieties and tea plantation conditions. Tea fields in Kagoshima Prefecture vary widely in terrain and surrounding environment. These conditions produce large variations in the characteristics of tea leaves, sometimes more so than the difference in actual tea variety. Thus, the depth and scope of a tea master’s knowledge is crucial.
The “tea master” makes use of the special characteristics of locally produced tea and combines into exquisite blends where each variety complements different varieties and brings out the best of the others. No single variety comes close to the delicate taste and flavor of blended green tea. Please enjoy the extraordinary tea blended by tea masters who have comprehensive knowledge of Kagoshima’s green teas.
