Mimasaka is one of the oldest tea production area starting in 12th century by Buddhist priests and recorded as one of major 3 tea area together with Kyoto &  Sayama in 14~15th Century.

  The unique sundried method was developed in the middle centuries and it has been inherited until today although only a few tea farms remain.

  They boiled tea leaves after picking up and then put these sundried. During sundried process, they drop tea boiled water several times. It enables crispy and mild flavor by long sun drying without too much dried.
