Background

Sayama Tea (Sayamacha, in Japanese) is a type of green tea leaves produced mainly in southwest region of Saitama Prefecture and a small neighbouring area in northwest Tokyo. In comparison to teas from other tea-growing regions in Japan, Sayama Tea is characterised with its thick leaves. This is because the region is considered to be fairly north, and the cool climate, which sometimes causes frost in winter, makes trees unable to survive without thick leaves.

Tea extracted from such thick leaves resulted in a distinct sweet and rich flavour. Sayama Tea has been found to have some of the highest levels of the beneficial antioxidants found in green tea.

    Amazing.

    Purchased the tea bags for a gift, and the recipient loved them. Said that the taste was strong, but not overpowering, and the tea was refreshing.
