We are pleased to announce the launch of our tea brand, YUCa’s Tea!
Japanese green tea is loved by people as an indispensable drink for daily health maintenance.
It is rich in vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, catechins, and other nutrients, and has the following benefits.
● Prevents carcinogenesis
● Reduce cholesterol in the blood
● Prevents aging
● Preventing the increase of blood pressure and blood sugar
● Prevents tooth decay
● Prevents bad breath
● Prevents the development of blemishes
● Keeps skin healthy, etc.
In Japan, green tea is grown over a wide area, from Akita in the north to Okinawa in the south.
Major production areas include Shizuoka, Kagoshima, Mie, Kyoto, and Saitama prefectures.
This time, as the first phase of YUCa’s Tea, we chose Chiran-cha (知覧茶) from Kagoshima prefecture.
Chiran-cha is a brand of green tea produced in Minami-Kyushu City, Kagoshima Prefecture, which boasts the largest production volume in Japan.
Minami-Kyushu City has the perfect conditions for producing delicious tea, with well-drained, fertile soil created by the volcanic ash of Sakurajima(桜島), a mild climate throughout the year, and abundant sunshine.
Chiran-cha is also famous as a deep steamed tea, and is characterized by its mild flavor after drinking.
To make it easy to enjoy Chiran-cha, the teabag style is designed to be easy to drink in a mug.
Also, on the back of the product, we have included instructions on how to enjoy the tea both hot and iced.
For the time being, the product will only be available in my cooking studio.
(Or, if you are interested, please contact us!)
How about this original product only available here as a souvenir?
Behind the Scenes…
I actually went to Kagoshima to visit the actual Chiran-cha plantation and taste the tea.
My husband was very instrumental in the launch of YUCa’s Tea!
The color of the tea bag was decided to be gold, which has a refined and elegant atmosphere.
In creating the label, which is the face of YUCa’s Tea, we wanted to create a unique world view of YUCa’s Tea, and I tried my hand at calligraphy for the first time in a long time!
I wrote about 30 sheets of calligraphy in a variety of styles and brush pressure and the final work was created!
I like the final work very much because it looks like a tea leaf growing in the full sunlight.
