This has been a tiring year for everybody, and we're more than happy to bring our beautiful region to you, with lots of green, blue and sunshine during these colder months. We've worked hard in partnership with the talented team of DoKoCha to tell you the secrets of Yame, the hidden tea valley, and produce in-depth video interviews of our Yame tea producers.
On our special page dedicated to this event, you will discover the secrets of this hidden tea valley. Irie san, Harashima san, Takaki san, Kiya san and Koga san take you to the mountainous region of Yame. They explain the joys and challenges of making some of the best teas in the world and show you how they prepare their favorite tea.
Dento hon gyokuro, organic sencha, kabusecha, wa-koucha (black tea): all of them and much more are grown and processed by hard-working and talented tea farmers, producers and masters of Yame region. They can't wait to share with you their stories.
