Uji Tea produced in Ujitawara, grown in rich soil and favorable climate conditions is made from a process that has continued until today. Comparing with other places, Uji Tea produced in Ujitawara features the extreme difference between the cold and hot weather during afternoon and night near the mountains. Thereby, gradually making nutrient-rich tea grows. As a result, tea leaves accumulate a lot of Umami components produced during the day time. At the border of Ujitawara, it inevitably produces good quality of tea leaves. Ujitawara is the birthplace of Aoisencha manufacturing process such as Sencha and Gyokuro process. And because of the tea masters, the tea tastes even much better. Therefore, Ujitawara is the birthplace of Aoisencha manufacturing process such as Sencha and Gyokuro process.
