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 on 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 product in the Meiji period and its production volumes increased substantially.
