Local Specialties Tokyo Sayama cha

The area on the border of Saitama, including Musashimurayama City, Mizuho Town and Higashiyamato City, has been known as an area of producing good-quality green tea since the Edo period. While the variety of tea produced in the entire area is generally called Sayama cha, the produce grown in Tokyo has been especially called Tokyo Sayama cha since the mid Showa period to differ from that grown in Saitama. Harvest season of Tokyo Sayama cha occurs twice a year, which is spring and summer and is fewer than other tea producing areas of Japan. This, however, is believed to give the tea more richness and flavor.
