The teas are grown in the southern island of Kyushu in the Yame region, which is famous for the mild taste of its 'Sencha' (Standard green tea) and 'Gyokuro' (Superior green tea).
Yame teas have become very popular in Japan recently since people prefer the mild flavour of these, in contrast to the punchy bitterness of traditional green teas.
The teas also provide consistently green colour (not brown), a distinctive smell, and flavour. Perhaps a sense of tranquillity as well?!
