Introduction of our tea farmers

Mr Yuki(Minamiyamashiro, Dosenbou, Kyoto prefecture)
Grown utilizing the environment of severe temperature differences and using skilful tea growing technology, Mr Yuki produces tea with a delicate balance of aroma, umami savoriness and bitterness. You can feel the original and authentic taste of green tea.

Mr Kayashita(Yamazoe, Nara prefecture)
Mr Kayashita who produces tea while living almost completely self-sufficiently in the mountains, grows tea using the once almost lost Kumano method of sun dried tea. Grown without using pesticides or fertilizer, this tea dried in the sunlight gently nourishes the body.

Mr Shibamoto(Makinohara, Shizuoka prefecture)
Mr Shibamoto is a farmer who produces unique tea such as ‘cherry blossom tea’ and tea produced using natural goat farming methods. He always tries to research new ideas and aims to make tea that ‘sparks joy’.

Many of the teas we serve at our tea house can be purchased in store.
If you are looking for tea leaves or teaware souvenirs to remember your time in Arashiyama,
please do not hesitate to ask our staff.
