    Yoshiwara-cho, Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture has been a tea-producing region since the Edo period. At the Kokaen tea plantation, tea plants are left to the wisdom of nature. They are not pruned by human hands. The master of Kokaen is a winner of the National Tea Appraisal Skill Competition held in Kyoto—the only winner so far to come from Aichi Prefecture. In order to produce flavorful tea, he selects organic fertilizer, nourishes the earth, and oversees every process of tea production from planting to processing. In the plantation, the local tea pickers hand-pick the tea leaves for matcha and fukamushi-cha green teas, using the traditional shigoki-tsumi picking method unique to Aichi.
