Yuya Murata

Murata-san has won numerous awards at national tea competitions for his full-bodied, emerald green, Fukamushicha. His tea farm is located in Kanaya, Shizuoka, the region regarded as being the birthplace of Fukamushicha. Murata-san cultivates the tea fields he inherited from his father with enthusiasm and pride. In order to achieve the rich flavor and color of his tea, Murata-san uses the special “Chagusaba” method. This involves spreading grass that grows in the area onto his fields. The grass acts as an organic fertilizer and helps enhance the growth, taste, and aroma of the tea. The Chagusaba method is listed as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System (GIAHS).
