Story

Nakamura Tea Farm is located in Tsuchiyama-cho, Koka City, Shiga Prefecture. Shigaraki Town, located right next door in the same city, is famous for Asamiya-cha, one of the five best teas in Japan, and Shigaraki ware, one of the six best kilns in Japan. Compared to them, Tsuchiyama-cho seems to be a rather plain place, and also Nakamura-san's tea, produced in such a place, is also a simple tea that does not suit words such as glamorous or impactful.

Since its history of being purchased as a raw material for Uji-cha, Tsuchiyama has been producing tea emphasizing umami and color. This "Sayamakaori" is also made using the shading process, but it is characterized by umami that gently permeates the tea rather than coming to the forefront. The bitterness and astringency are thin, and the peculiar aroma that "Sayamakaori" tends to have is suppressed, resulting in an elegant, simple, and gentle taste.

The taste is elegant, simple, and gentle. It is a tea good for daily drinks.
