Tasting Guide

Aromatic Profiles


In 2010, Ooyama Yoshiaki san, son of Jisaku Ooyama, became the fourth generation owner of the Ooyama tea plantation (Higashi-Sonogi, Nagasaki pref.).

He gained business experience by managing a record shop in Tokyo in his twenties. He has set a clear goal of increasing direct sales to customers to fight against the general trend of decreasing green tea sales in Japan, including by targeting overseas customers.

Continuing the award-winning work of his father, Ooyama san wishes to develop new business opportunities, such as producing matcha and organic tea.
