History and Culture of Uji Tea

 

Uji tea cultivation began in the Kamakura period in the early 13th century. When the monk Eisai returned from China, he told him about the custom of drinking tea, and the seeds were planted by the monk, Meie, in Uji, Kyoto.

 

Cultivation in Uji expanded rapidly due to perfect natural conditions such as soil and topography. Uji tea was considered a "First Class Gift", and a "Fighting Tea" was held to drink tea in production areas. It is said that "Cha-no-yu", which was developed by Senrikyu, put Uji tea (matcha) first and demanded quality and improvement.

 

During the Edo period, the Tokugawa III Shogun Lemitsu ordered the Uji Kambayashi family to make imperial court confession tea and high-grade tea directly for the Shogun family, and institutionalized the transportation of new tea to Edo as "Ochabo Michinaka". It continued for 50 years.

 

In the late Meiji era, Uji tea spread to ordinary households, triggering the establishment of tea culture at home. Eisai's "Cafe Health Record" states, "Tea is a curing herbal medicine. It's a magical way to prolong life." It encourages you to drink tea and live longer.
