Japanese green teas are renowned for their superior quality and delicate flavor, they are grown and picked by hand using traditional methods. Japanese green teas are typically grown in mountainous regions of Japan, such as Shizuoka, Uji, and Yame, where the cool, humid climate is ideal for growing these teas.
