YAMATO-CHA

WHAT is

YAMATO-CHA?

大和茶とは大同元年(806年)に弘法大師が中国より茶の種を持ち帰り弟子の堅恵大徳が宇陀市榛原赤埴の佛隆寺に植えさせたのが初めとされています。

『ひむがしの野にかぎろひ立つみえて』の歌で知られる奈良県東北部の大和高原一帯の山間地で生産されており標高300m以上、朝晩の温度差が激しい高冷地です。

平均気温や日照などが、お茶が育つギリギリの条件なのでお茶はゆっくりと育っていき、その分香り高い良質な茶ができます。

厳しい条件下で栽培される大和茶は深みのある味わいを感じて頂き二煎・三煎まで美味しく、そしてより多くのカテキンをお飲みいただけます。

Grandmaster monk, Kobo Daishi brought tea seeds from China in 806. One of his disciples, KENNE-DAITOKU planted the seeds at BUTSURYU-Temple and started cultivate Yamato Tea in Akabane, Haibara, Uda-city.

Yamato tea has been produced in the mountainous areas of Yamato in northeastern of Nara Prefecture where an altitude of the area is more than 300m and temperature difference in the morning and night is very intense.

The weather in the mountain area satisfies the minimum temperature and amount of sunlight for the tea cultivation so that tea trees grow slowly and they produce very high quality tea leaves which are full of aroma.

Yamato tea which is produced in such unique condition has very deep taste and you can enjoy up to the third extraction with full of flavor and catechin components.
