Koka City, Shiga Prefecture, is a neighborhood located to the east of Kyoto, famous for Uji-tea, and this is the area where Ohmi tea is produced.
Ohmi tea has great prestige and is loved by many for its rich flavor and fragrance, which are brought about by the rich nature, plenty of sunshine and the beautiful water and air from the surrounding Suzuka mountains.

As the legend goes, the history of the cultivation of tea in this area dates back to the period of the Northern and Southern Courts (1356), when a Zen monk, Donoh of Minami Tsuchiyama Johmyo-Ji Temple brought some tea seeds from Daitoku-Ji Temple in Kyoto to his temple and began to grow tea plants. It was in the Edo period that the production and sales of tea started in a full scale. An advanced tea-producing technology was adopted at an early stage and tea produce was sold as one of the local products along the main roads. Since the local climate and soil were fit for the production of tea, it became an export produce in the Meiji period and its production volumes increased substantially.

Most green teas currently on the market are a mix of varieties of different teas. A wide variety of teas are produced throughout Japan, each of which has its characteristic taste, and it is becoming a pleasant way of appreciating tea to drink many different kinds in comparison.

We introduce to you an assortment of teas produced exclusively in Shiga Prefecture, instead of presenting with different sorts from other parts of Japan, so that you can enjoy each of the characteristic local teas in Shiga.
These single origin teas can stand their own separately or you can create your own, personal tea blend, mixing together your favorites. We also provide some recipes in the package as recommendations of how to mix different variants.
